The Almanor Basin Watershed Advisory Committee (ABWAC) is hosting a community forum tonight, May 25, on PG&E’s cloud seeding operations in the Lake Almanor Basin.

The forum will be held in the new Almanor Recreation Center, which is located at 450 Meadowbrook Loop, next to the Truman Collins Sports Complex.

The forum is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. and conclude by 8:30 p.m.

The forum will be facilitated by ABWAC chairman Ryan Burnett and watershed coordinator Emily Creeley.

Creely has advised there will be a number of agency representatives on hand to respond to public questions and provide information regarding the practice and purpose of cloud seeding, the environment, public health, air quality and regulatory oversight.

As of May 20, Creely said the confirmed forum speakers include Don Griffith, North American Weather Consultants, who will discuss cloud seeding, how it works and the studies behind cloud seeding.

Speaker Byron Marler, PG&E meteorologist, will specifically discuss the Lake Almanor project operations.

Creely said additional scientists are still being confirmed for attendance.

In addition to the speakers, several experts in water quality and regulatory oversight will be there to answer questions.

It is anticipated that panel members will give an overview of their specific topics from 6 – 7 p.m. Following this portion of the forum, approximately one hour of time has been designated as a question-and-answer period.
