The local water agency is championing a project to build a 275-foot tall dam—called Centennial—on the Bear River, and create a 110,000-acre-foot reservoir. If built, Centennial Dam would block the last six miles of free-flowing, publicly-accessible river on the Bear. It would wipe out sacred Native American sites, beloved swimming holes, public campgrounds, oak woodlands and other fish and wildlife habitat. Read more >>

We’re mobilizing and assembling a team of 1,000 Dam Watchdogs.
Join SYRCL and help us scrutinize every angle of the Centennial Dam project and raise awareness of the impacts on the Yuba and Bear Rivers, water supply and wildlife. If Centennial Dam is green lighted, we’ll lose beloved public and sacred land—Native American heritage sites, campgrounds, a whitewater boating run, hiking trails and river access. Read more >>
