This is enough to meet the annual needs of 18 people. Both authorized and unauthorized withdrawal of water from riparian wells and potentially from wells throughout the watershed for residential or agricultural use can lower groundwater levels and thus reduce contribution of cold groundwater flows to surface water, and decrease the level of or eliminate surface water flows, particularly during the summer months when flow is at a minimum. But that does not take away from the realities that the ocean holds the key to salmon population levels. The degradation of soil is one of the most pressing environmental issues facing society at present, and clear cutting only contributes to it. Invasive species may also introduce new diseases, which could affect humans and wildlife, according to the NWF. Wells otherwise, unless there is a defined ground water basin, are the subject to much speculation.

It is a also a timeless lesson to be learned, right here in Mendocino County.

It involves tractor-logging hundreds of stately second-growth redwoods that line the lower Gualala River, which straddles the Sonoma-Mendocino county line on the coast, in areas spared from axes and chainsaws for a century or more.

Williamson in a widely-read essay during the run-up to the election:. We had more coho than freshwater habitat. Clear cutting can increase the risk of landslides. Sorry, but riparian habitat loss, not the only factor but a major one for anadromous fishes, the prime issues being dams, siltation and seasonal flow, especially in tributaries.

Well then we can agree that our differing view points have nothing to do with disagreements on science, and everything to do with differing faiths, and beliefs. And that science will continue to evolve.

That is what we are seeing with salmon. Ginevra Chandler, who is the former chief legal counsel of Cal Fire, and none other than Doug Bosco, one of the biggest influence peddlers in the North Bay and North Coast — a region he represented in Congress from Salmon are somewhere maxam the middle of the food chain.

Common ground should be the commons—our common heritage. According to the Forestry Department of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations FOAthe simple industrial processes involved in forest utilization can leave different ecosystems more vulnerable to invasive plants and animals.

Salmon population metrics are difficult to specifically predict, but follow well defined ocean condition trends. Wells otherwise, unless there is a defined ground water basin, are the subject to much speculation.

They reek of the same self-interest and dismissal of the concerns of ecologists and environmentalists aid your denial of climate change in other comments you have posted. Animal populations, that are in the middle of the food chain, will have fluctuations in population sized due to two primary factors; food supply and predation. Which is more important to you?


How many redwoods have been logged? Corporations like Gualala Redwoods Timber prioritizes profits at the expense of the public good. Logging in this time period, going back years, was inconsiderate of freshwater habitat, yet the coho were in all the local rivers in high numbers.

Chandler says she will be submitting sir final briefing on GRT’s behalf by February 2nd.

The local flora may also fail to adapt.

While the value of natural beauty can be difficult to quantify, some statistics suggest that scenic highways may bring in as much as 32, dollars per mile. Harvesting timber along the Gualala River, or moues harvest timber will do nothing to change the reality of salmon populations on the Gualala River.

Bosco’s role on this public agency made conservationists especially angry when he turned up as GRT’s attorney.
