Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter Wednesday, May 18, 2016 9B Feather River Land Trust is offering guided tours via kayak or canoe of the Middle Fork Feather River in Sierra Valley. The event takes place Saturday, May 28. Photo submitted Pacific Gas and Electric Company said last week that it projects water levels at Lake Almanor and Bucks Lake will be above normal this summer due to above normal precipitation over the winter. PG&E announced the lake level projections at the 2105 Lake Level Committee meeting in Chico, which is held most years to review and discuss PG&E's planned water operations for Lake Almanor and Bucks Lake for the remainder of the year. The committee name refers to Federal Energy Regulatory Commission project No. 2105, which is the license number for PG&E's Upper North Fork Feather River hydroelectric project. Kevin Richards, a hydrologist in PG&E's power generation department, said at the meeting that PG&E plans its operations to balance recreation, the environment, electric power generation and other needs. With the best precipitation |a season in years for the northern Sierra Nevada and southern Cascades, Lake Almanor will be about 4 feet higher than normal this summer, which is about 8 feet higher than last year's levels. Although total precipitation for the season to date in the Lake Almanor basin is at 120 percent of normal, this year's warm winter and spring has resulted in below average snowpack, and the spring runoff is forecast to be only 83 percent of normal, Richards reported. This year, based on current data, a moderate summer electrical demand and historical modeling, PG&E projects Lake Almanor levels will reach approximately 4,492 feet elevation by July 4. The level is projected to be approximately 4,488 feet by Labor Day. For Bucks Lake, levels are also much higher than last year, and the lake will remain very full, above approximately 5,155 feet elevation through July 4. This is more than 10 feet higher than last year for that date. Bucks Lake's level will be approximately 5,148 feet in elevation by Labor Day. Lake Almanor receives much of its water from volcanic aquifers in the southern Cascade mountain range, which release a steady year-round flow of water from springs. Bucks Lake is in the Sierra Nevada and largely relies on surface runoff from the current season. PG&E expects Butt Valley Reservoir to be within normal operating range this summer.
