CCP’s Dorian Fougères is facilitating the Mokelumne Avoided Cost Analysis effort through the Sierra Nevada Conservancy. A stakeholder from this process mentions this in an article in Outside.

"In the Mokelumne watershed we're working with the Forest Service and other partners (East Bay Municipal Utility District, Sierra Nevada Conservancy, Sierra Pacific Industries, Foothill Conservancy, and others) to see how much money and resources they could save through thinning forests in the Mokelumne headwaters, before a potential wildfire impacts the water supply for the East Bay area and its metro areas, such as Berkeley and Oakland. Post-wildfire fire sediment degrades water quality and fills reservoirs, decreasing their storage capacity. High sediment levels can also impact fish and other aquatic species in the stream."
