The North San Joaquin Water Conservation District discussed creating an interim water operations advisory committee at their meeting Monday night. The committee would include the public in ongoing discussions about how the district can best serve the area.
Former board member Robb Hoag said there was already such a committee and offered to bring a list to the next meeting. The list includes area growers who currently purchase water from the district. The vote to create the committee was tabled to wait for the list.
Director Hugh Scanlon voted against tabling the vote because he feels the committee will head in too many directions at once.
Should anyone be interested in participating in the committee, contact Hoag at 209-481-2895.
The district will hold a special session to discuss plans for the incoming year on Feb. 16 at 3 p.m. in the Lodi Public Library.
