January 2023 — Heavy rains this year, in December & January, led to sediment discharging into Olympia, Whitewater, and Wolf Creeks just downstream of the phase I construction of the Loma Rica Ranch Development. Documentation by WCCA, consultation with the CA Water Board and meetings with the Loma Rica Ranch project manager led to significantly improved BMPs that have reduced sediment and turbidity to levels that no longer threaten aquatic ecosystems and its species, in particular native trout. WCCA is grateful for the support of the Loma Rica Ranch development, the City of Grass Valley, and the CA Water Board for their work in resolving this issue.
