Omnibus Public Land Management Act Of 2009

Floor Speech

Location: Washington, DC


Mr. GALLEGLY. Mr. Speaker, subsection 199 of H.R. 146, the Omnibus Public Land Management Act of 2009, concerns two stream segments on Piru Creek located on National Forest lands in Southern California and those segments flow to and from existing hydroelectric facilities and water supply operations. Water is released from Pyramid Lake into Piru Creek for conveyance and delivery to Lake Piru for the United Water Conservation District and water is also released from Lake Piru. The amount and timing of water delivered or released may need to change to address the community's water needs and to protect the endangered Arroyo Toad.

According to a statement by the author of this subsection of the legislation, it is my understanding that this legislation is not intended to preclude or limit the State of California, the Department of Water Resources of the State of California, the United Water Conservation District, and other governmental entities from releasing water for water conservation purposes.
