Water Audit California: Bremer Family Winery

On June 23, 2020, Water Audit California sent the following extraordinary letter to the Napa County Planning Commission, staff, county counsel, and the State Department of Fish and Wildlife. The authors raise a number of issues regarding the processing of the Bremer matter that should be of concern to all of us. We feel compelled to share it with you. 

We are impressed by the letter’s careful, studious meticulousness, and its documentation of the processes and history of the application. At the very least, this letter exposes errors, inadequate attention to important details, and missteps in the application process. At the more worrisome end of the spectrum, the document describes side-stepping of the regulations, laws, and codes that we as residents and stakeholders entrust our county elected and appointed officials and staff to follow, respect, and adhere. We expect fair operation of our county government. The facts set forth in this document describe anything but that.

Though it is lengthy, it is approachable and very much worth taking the time to read. The supporting documents are hyperlinked. We believe this is important information to bring to our readers. Let us know what you think.
