Manteca Bulletin


South San Joaquin County as well as the rest of California is in severe drought. But one of the big worries of more than a few people including rural South Manteca farmers and residents, elected leaders in Manteca and Lathrop, and the handful of city residents not oblivious to the fact they reside in one of the most flood prone areas in California is too much water.

The drought is different this time. Everyone in the Sacramento region must conserve water

California is in the grip of another extreme drought. The consequences can be seen all over the Sacramento region and, unfortunately, the worst is yet to come. We expect to see water levels in the American River this fall that may reach historic lows.

Keeping your lawn alive during a drought

Memories of drought are hard to erase. The decadelong drought of the “Dirty Thirties” was etched in my parents’ young memories, as they still told stories 70 years later. Although the drought of 1988-89 didn’t last nearly as long, I still have vivid memories, mostly because our lawn died. Lawn...

California firefighters hold back huge blaze near town torched in 2018

California firefighters scored a rare win for this season when the state’s largest wildfire stayed within a perimeter they built.

It’s destroyed at least 42 homes so far and threatens more than 10,000 others.
