What's Happening?

A committee called the Inyo/Los Angeles Technical Group will be meeting in Bishop next Thursday, May 9, to discuss potential changes to Los Angeles Department of Water and Power’s Draft Annual Operations Plan. This group consists of representatives from Inyo County and LADWP, and they meet to examine technical aspects of water management in the upcoming year.

At this meeting, they will discuss these two documents with time for public comment. Your voice can make a difference!

This meeting will be our LAST CHANCE as concerned Inyo County residents and lovers of the Eastern Sierra to push for reductions in pumping before LADWP locks in its plans through March 2025!

What Can I Do?

1) Attend the meeting and provide your oral comments urging LADWP to reduce pumping. By attending and commenting, we’ll show LADWP that we care and we are paying attention. This will be a hybrid (in-person + online/virtual) meeting.

Attending in Person: The in-person meeting will be held at 9:00 am Thursday, May 9, in Room 101 of the County Consolidated Office Building (Clint Quilter Building) located at 1360 N. Main St., in Bishop.

Attending Virtually: There will also be an option to attend virtually (online), but that link and the agenda have not yet been released. Friends of the Inyo will share that information with our supporters as soon as we are able to access it.

2) Monitor your email inbox for further communications from us. Early next week, when the county releases the agenda, we will send out talking points to help you prepare your comments. Together, we can help protect our local water!

3) Become more familiar with the Inyo County Water Department. Visit the department's website, inyowater.org.
