Indian Valley Watermaster District
Currently, watermaster services for the residents of Indian Valley in Plumas County are provided by the Department of Water Resources. This bill would create a new special district to provide watermaster services for Indian Valley. Under existing law, a watermaster is a person or agent who ensures fair and equitable water usage between water rights holders in a given area. The purpose of this bill is to transfer responsibility for watermaster services from the DWR to the residents of Indian Valley, allowing them to more efficiently control their services at the local level.
