Breaking news: Landmark agreement with DWP for Mono Basin stream restoration

We are thrilled to announce the completion of an innovative agreement with the Los Angeles Department of Water & Power that will result in a significant leap forward in restoring the health of fisheries, streamside forests, birds, and wildlife on 19 miles of Mono Basin streams without reducing water exports to Los Angeles.

The Los Angeles Department of Water & Power Board of Commissioners is set to vote on the agreement in their Tuesday, August 27th meeting.

Stay tuned here on the Mono-logue for more information on the agreement and an update on the vote. We’ll be posting on Facebook, Twitter, and with #monolakecommittee on Instagram as well.
