2014-07-10 SSJID's Jeff Shields

July 10th - 7:30 PM Jeff Shields, SSJID

South San Joaquin Irrigation District's General Manager, Jeff Shields, provided an update on both the drought situation's near and longer-term outlooks for our region as well as SSJID's bid to become our electric provider to lower costs.

Drought concerns take front and center in this 2014 irrigation season and we in Manteca are in relatively good shape this year, but if the drought continues, the future impacts may be dramatic - as they already are in some areas of the state. During the worst drought in California, the District's goal is to make enough water available for the irrigation season to assure growers have a successful crop and that the municipal water users receive enough high quality water from the Water Treatment Plant to protect the health and safety of the community. Jeff will provide the latest forecasts, the water rights battle raging in Sacramento, and why the predicted El NiƱo does not necessarily mean a wet winter for our region and could result in a drier than average year and worsening drought. In fact, based on previous droughts, Manteca may see our water table drop 20 feet by October with impacts to some wells and to growing salt intrusion to our aquifer. Read more on the actions SSJID is taking at:

SSJID's bid promises to provide retail electricity with achieve significant cost savings, service improvement and increased reliability to its current agricultural customers, residents, businesses and governmental entities within Manteca, Escalon, Ripon and surrounding rural areas. Jeff also provide an update on the LAFCo approval process.
