Re: “Stark Contrasts in EBMUD Race

As a 25-year Sierra foothill advocate for Mokelumne River protection and restoration, I'm supporting Marguerite Young in this race. I've known and worked with Marguerite for years. Unlike Katy Foulkes, she opposed the river-destroying proposal to expand Pardee Reservoir. And as the article noted, she supports true Wild and Scenic River protection for the Mokelumne. I urge voters who care about the source of their high-quality water to vote for Marguerite Young this fall.

Re: “EBMUD May Block Wild and Scenic Status for the Mokelumne

The EBMUD board learned the wrong lesson from conservationists' successful 2009 lawsuit protecting the Mokelumne from the proposed expansion of Pardee Reservoir. Some of them think the lesson was never to "get ahead" of the water agencies in foothill counties, who care little about the Mokelumne River. The real lesson was this: EBMUD should be a leader in conservation, efficiency and Mokelumne River protection.

Re: “EBMUD Kills Sierra Dam Proposal

EBMUD should be praised for this bold step and encouraged to take the next one: full support for National Wild and Scenic River designation for the Mokelumne. They already support designation of about 35+ miles of the river, except for the area that was to be inundated by the larger dam. With the dam out of the plan, it's in ratepayers' best interest to support the full 37-mile proposal. Otherwise, someone else could come along and propose a dam on the Middle Bar or lower Electra run.
