Water System Improvement Bid to be Rewarded
FALL RIVER MILLS — The Fall River Valley Community
Services District received two qualified bids for
According to District Manager Bill Johnson, the bids
still have to be evaluated by the engineer, but it
appears that the low bidder is Hat Creek Construction
The $400,000 plus bid is to replace and relocate the
system’s pressure regulation valve and improve the
system by replacing the existing small bypass valve
between the water tank in Fall River Mills and the town
of McArthur. That will improve the system performance by
allowing the water to be fed completely by gravity. The
money is part of the existing grant funds. Additionally
a STABA system will be installed which will give the
district information as to problems.
Preliminary reports from Vestra show a mildly high
concentration of thallum in the debris existing in the
basement of the old feed mill on the property the
district hopes to establish a community park.
That chemical is a soft metal in the same category as
aluminum and was once legally used as rodent poison.
Options will be weighed when the final report is
Hikers Found Cold but Safe
On Thursday, June 16 at 10 a.m., the Siskiyou
County Sheriff’s Office contacted the Shasta
County Sheriff’s Office regarding two female
hikers, Tate Bailey, 21, of Goodlettsville, TN,
and Alex Vallett, 22, of Old Hickory, TN, who
were in distress on the Pacific Crest Trail
(PCT) in Shasta County. Originally it was
thought the hikers were in Siskiyou County.
At approximately 7:30 a.m. Friday, Jennifer
Bailey, the mother of Tate, checked Tate’s
website for the SPOT device Tate was carrying
and discovered Tate and Alex were sending
signals for help. Jennifer did not know why they
needed help, but called authorities in Siskiyou
County for assistance. The GPS coordinates put
the two hikers south of the Siskiyou County line
on the PCT near Summit Lake Rd., west of S/R 89.
The California Highway Patrol helicopter was
requested. Personnel from both the Shasta County
Sheriff’s Office - Burney area, and the United
States Forest Service responded to the location.
The California Highway Patrol helicopter was
able to locate Tate and Alex, land nearby and
walk to the hikers. They were able to fly the
hikers and their gear back to Redding.
Tate and Alex were cold, but not in need of any
medical attention. The unexpected rain storm
yesterday drenched them and their gear. Snow
came in during the night and early morning and
covered the PCT and froze their wet clothes and
gear. They became too cold to go any further and
they also lost sight of the trail.
The Shasta County Sheriff’s Office would like to
thank the California Highway Patrol and their
helicopter crew for their assistance in locating
and returning Tate and Alex to safety.
