UPDATE: Thank you for your support. This action is complete.
NID has submitted a proposal to the California Water Commission for $11.95 million. It’s a paltry request for this colossal project. Still, NID is pushing the unsubstantiated idea among state officials that Centennial creates additional habitat and recreational opportunities. This is outrageous.
Help us tell the California Water Commission that projects that destroy cultural heritage sites, swimming and fishing holes, 2,200 acres of river canyon forests, and riparian and wetland ecosystems do not benefit the public.
Please sign-on to this letter to the California Water Commission (CWC), asking them to deny NID’s request for $11.95 million for Centennial Dam because the project would destroy too much and NID fails to prove it adds any net public benefits.
We have to let state decision-makers know that Centennial Dam is a financial boondoggle that would sacrifice too much for our community and the Bear River.
