At Markleeville Water Company’s request the Forest Service is removing eight (8) burned trees from around the Pleasant Valley water tank. If these trees were allowed to remain there is a danger of the trees falling on the tank. This would put the tank out of service and we estimate it would be well over a year before it could be placed back in service.
This water tank provides all of Marklee Village and Thornburg subdivisions with drinking water and fire protection. Living without this tank is not an option for us. These trees truly are a hazard to our water supply and without a water supply we cannot inhabit our homes.
Please do not complain to, or harass the crews doing the tree removal. They are protecting your water supply.
