7/6 4:45pm: Esalen update


Esalen lost their 4″ water main in the fire a few nights ago, and then the galvanized pipes a little while after that.  They still have 5 tanks of water on the property to sustain the 52 people that remain on property and are putting the final touches on a new system (they’re setting up the old pump that was used to lift hot springs water to the temporary tubs to lift water out of the stream into the treatment system.

Backburns were scheduled to start today along the highway from Anderson Canyon all the way down to the southern perimeter (Dolan) but have not begun (speculated that they are waiting for better conditions.)
