TRUCKEE, Calif. Nov. 20, 2012 - The Truckee Donner Public Utility District (TDPUD), Northstar Community Services District (NSCSD), and Placer County Water Agency (PCWA) have partnered to develop a groundwater management plan and groundwater model for the Martis Valley basin. The agencies invite the public to the final workshop to present the draft plan and preliminary model to the community.

The workshop takes place on Thursday, November 29, 2012 at Truckee Donner Public Utility District's board room, 11570 Donner Pass Road, Truckee, Calif. from 5–7 p.m.

Development of the Martis Valley Groundwater Management Plan began in summer 2011 and the draft report has recently been completed. Groundwater sustainability, overdraft protection, groundwater recharge rates, and understanding the impacts of climate change are among the goals of the project. The next steps are formal adoption of the Groundwater Management Plan by each partner agency and to begin implementation of the GMP. Public participation is welcomed and encouraged.

Groundwater Management Plan information can be found at www.martisvalleygmp.org.

The TDPUD is a non-profit, publicly owned utility agency created in 1927 and overseen by a locally elected board of directors. TDPUD provides the greater Truckee area with reliable and high quality water and power services while guiding the community to conserve resources. For more information about the TDPUD, call 530-587-3896 or visit www.tdpud.org.

The Placer County Water Agency was created on September 11, 1957 by a special act of the State Legislature. The Agency's mandate is to develop and protect the water resources within the County, for the people of Placer County. The Agency provides raw water for irrigation customers, retails and wholesales treated water for residential, commercial and industrial purposes and owns and operates a power system on the Middle Fork of the American River which generates 1.03 billion kilowatt hours annually.

The NCSD was founded in 1990 under Government Code 61600 as a local government entity to serve the Northstar Community with governmental services. The District currently provides fire protection, fuels management, water, sewer collection, snow removal, road surface maintenance, recycling services, solid waste management and trail construction and maintenance.
