The California Natural Resources Agency (CNRA) has released a draft Mokelumne River Wild and Scenic River Study Report. The draft study finds 37 miles of the Mokelumne River from Salt Springs Dam to Pardee Reservoir to be eligible for state protection as a Wild and Scenic River, protecting it from new dams and major diversions.
But local development interests who still dream of building large dams on the Mokelumne or its major tributaries may dispute the CNRA’s eligibility recommendation and oppose any future legislation to protect the river.
We need YOU to speak out TODAY in support of protecting the river. Friends of the River can describe the challenge and prescribe your way to assist.
