Protect Bear River
Have you heard about the controversial plan to build the 275-foot Centennial Dam on the Bear River?
In the 21st century, dams are a last resort because they harm the environment and have skyrocketing costs. Today, smart water managers are using sustainable and innovative solutions to meet future water needs.
We don’t need a new dam generating more polluting sprawl and traffic. Let’s work together to increase our water supply by restoring our forests and meadows, and use the water we do have more wisely.
If built, Centennial Dam would…
- Flood the last nine miles of publicly-accessible, free-flowing river on the Bear River
- Destroy fish and wildlife habitat, beloved swimming holes, and Native American sites
- Decimate 2,200 acres of forested river canyon – including riparian and wetland areas.
