As you are aware, California is experiencing a severe drought this year. Even though Trinity County has been fortunate to receive some rain off and on during February and March, it is not nearly enough to replace what we did not receive during November, December, and January. The snow pack has approximately 12% of the moisture content that is average for the end of winter. With lakes being at an all-time low, power generation will be greatly reduced. This means that the cost of the power that Trinity PUD purchases from the Western Area Power Administration will be increased. Trinity PUD has already experienced a 54% increase in this cost of power with another increase expected later this year. This means that we will not be able to remove the Drought Relief Surcharge from your bill this year. We know the hardship that this extra cost creates for many of our customers, however, these large fluctuations in power cost go along with receiving all of our power from the federal hydroelectric system. We appreciate your understand and we all hope for more rain next fall and winter.
Paul Hauser, General Manager
