On July 21, 2020, FERC refused to reverse the waivers of Clean Water Act protections on over a dozen dams and hydropower units in the Yuba and Bear River watersheds. Despite overwhelming opposition, FERC will not uphold the Clean Water Act and has decided to allow hydropower dams to harm our rivers for generations to come. SYRCL cannot let this stand. 

Thank you to the 800 members and supporters who signed this important letter.  SYRCL will continue to engage with stakeholders and strongly advocate for important clean water protections in our watersheds. 

If you can, please continue to help us defend our beloved rivers by donating today. We remain committed to uniting the community on behalf of our watersheds through science-based advocacy, but we need your help to address this new threat. Stay tuned for more details about our actions over the next month.
