Hello Friends of the Colorado River!
Please take action to help STOP the proposed Lake Powell Pipeline. The public comment period is closing in on Saturday, Feb. 27th (tomorrow), and we need you to send an email to the federal government today asking them to stop this disastrous project that would drain another 28 BILLION gallons of water out of the Colorado River every single year. The Colorado River is already stretched to the breaking point — taking more water out of the river to subsidize growth and waste in Utah’s desert is nonsensical.
