Many people have been wondering how reduction of the required Environmental Flow Rate in Chapman Creek would affect the future water storage situation.
If the required minimum Environmental Flow Rate could be reduced, without harm to the fish population of Chapman Creek, then the reservoir capacity required to be built, and the cost of building it, would be significantly less as a result.
The cost of a reservoir will be borne by the taxpayers whatever it turns out to be. Hopefully everyone involved is aware of, and properly considering this important relationship between the flow rate of Chapman Creek and our taxes in the future.
