DROUGHT AND WILDFIRES Wildfire, climate and plant communities

Mark Schwartz, director of the John Muir Institute of the Environment, can discuss the impact of climate change on wildfires, as well as where and when plant communities are predicted to exhibit stress as a consequence of unusual climatic conditions, including wildfire. His work to help better predict fire behavior and forest vulnerabilities informs decisions about fire management, including prescribed fire, fuels reduction, and management responses to wildfire events.

Woodland to residents: Chromium Six levels exceed state standard


WOODLAND - Woodland residents will soon be receiving a letter telling them the level of Chromium Six --a known carcinogen -- will be higher than the new state standard for drinking water.

Should they be worried?

"Our concentration is above the new limit. We're just letting you know. And it's not an immediate health risk of any kind," Woodland Principal Utilities Engineer Tim Busch said. "It's not a notice of violation. The state does know we are in construction with a solution already."

That solution is a new $228 million Surface Water Project, a filtration plant that will draw Sacramento River water starting in May or June of 2016.

The federal government requires Chromium Six levels to be at or below 100 parts per billion. The allowable California state level, which formerly stood at 50 parts per billion was changed to 10 parts per billion in 2014.
