The South Tahoe Public Utility District, in an effort to halt spillage into the East Fork of the Carson River next spring and to kill off an unwanted species of fish, has drained nearly all of the wastewater at Indian Creek Reservoir in Alpine County. The drainage should give STPUD enough storage area to avoid dumping its excess effluent into the Carson River, something the district has done five of the past six springs.

Don Bently has purchased the 2,340-acre Carson Valley Ranch and said he plans to put the sagebrush-covered property into alfalfa production. The purchase price for the East Valley property was $7 million, Bently said. The acreage he purchased was once part of the original Dangberg Ranch and should be easily returned to farming through Bently Agrowdynamics’ modern irrigation methods, Bently said.
