Stephanie Tidwell, Friends of the Eel River Executive Director, and Scott Greacen, Friends of the Eel River Conservation Director, discuss new and proposed state legislation and how it may effect the Eel River.
California legislators passed SB 92 and AB 1270, both of which provide greater oversight of California dams. AB 1270 requires annual inspections of high hazard dams - those were loss of life is likely in the event of dam failure, and even makes some information from inspections part of the public record. If these new procedures raise red flags about the safety of Scott Dam on the Eel River, we will know the system is on the right track.
Stephanie and Scott also discuss Friends of the Eel River's cautious optimism for Mike McGuire's proposed Great Redwood Trail Act, SB 1029. This bill seeks to resolve the longstanding issues with the Northcoast Railroad Authority and failed NW Pacific rail line, and to expand trail and recreational opportunities for the region. Tune in to hear about Friends of the Eel River's vision for the future of the Eel River Canyon.
