      I decided to sent this message to this group too, in case anyone doesn't know the changes at the Water Treatment Plant in Ukiah yet.

      's up, Birderdudes?

      I went up to Mendocino County to look for the Solitary Sandpiper found yesterday in Hopland. Nada. Then I went to the Ukiah Waste Water Treatment Plant. Not much there either. BUT there have been some changes which you should note (see below).

      Napa County

      No big deal. I drove back through the torture of Lake and Napa County roads taking all day. I stopped at the Bothe-Napa State Park and drove up the little road towards the camp sites (first right). Along the stream, added a singing WINTER WREN.

      Ukiah Water Treatment Ponds

      For the next three years, the plant is undergoing reconstruction by the Harris & Associates Company and you must sign in with them prior to entering the plant. So here are their rules. Learn and obey so you don't screw it up for everyone else.

      1. Monday thru Friday please sign in & out at the Harris & Associates construction Trailer located at the corner of Plant Road and Taylor Road. (Plant Road is the same road you currently use to get to the Treatment plant. However, as you get to the intersection with Taylor, go just past the intersection and turn into a gravel driveway on the west side of the big wooden barn, then go to the end and enter the first trailer on the left. It is not yet marked with their name.)

      2. During the work week parking is only available on Plant Road. (NOT in the Treatment plant parking lot as before. You have to walk in now.)

      3. There has been a path constructed outside of the construction area. Turn right as you walk into the parking area just after the cement embutment at the entrance and follow the gravel path next to the wire fence with pink topped metal poles staying to the west of the fence until you get to the pond. You then turn left and follow outside the pink topped posts until you pass the end of the first pond. At this point, it's the same as before. You can walk around all the ponds. Leave the same way. The idea is to stay out of the construction area.

      4 Remember to sign out when you leave.

      5. They added, "We appologize for the inconvenience. We hope you enjoy your visit. Thank you for being safe."

      I think #5 is too condescending.
