Protect Folsom Oaks — Immediate Action Needed

PG&E plans to remove (Clearcut) a number of mature Oak Trees in the powerline corridors next to walking and biking paths. Over 300 trees in all (Oaks and others) Work is scheduled to start on NOVEMBER 1. Many of these Oak Trees are in the Oak Avenue Parkway (The Bike Trail Corridor) between Natoma Street and Blue Ravine – leading to BT Collins Park. The Corridor also extends across portions of the City and into American River Canyon. Some trees are on Private Property, some on City Land and some on PG&E property. In July 2020 PG&E clearcut a number of mature oaks near St. Johns without any Notice to the City or the Public. It appears PG&E is ready to Clear Cut the rest of the Corridor. NOTE – the plan and documents provided by PG&E are not clear, so more information is needed by the City and the Public – Before Removal can Occur.

CITY COUNCIL MEETING – THIS TUESDAY OCTOBER 26 AT 6:00 pm. – City Council Chambers 50 Natoma Street – Folsom

Comments on the North American Subbasin draft Groundwater Sustainability Plan

On October 14, 2021, ECOS and Habitat 2020 submitted comments on the North American Subbasin (NASb) draft Groundwater Sustainability Plan (GSPD).

ECOS commends the effort of the North American Subbasin Groundwater Sustainability Agencies (GSAs), and their consultants, for involving the public and in preparing the GSPD. The GSPD provides both a technical and lay understanding of the North American Subbasin (NASb) and how groundwater moves within it. The GSPD is an important reference document that brings together a wealth of information in one place. With additional information, projects and management Actions recommended below, the GSPD will present a clear direction for the subbasin’s sustainable groundwater management.
