Save salmon and sacred sites: Speak out against the Shasta Dam raise by Sept. 30!
Time is running out to submit a public comment to the Bureau of Reclamation telling them. The dam raise would destroy several miles of potential salmon spawning grounds on the McCloud and would submerge or damage nearly 40 sacred sites, including our Coming of Age ceremony site.
The dam is being raised to the cost of $1 billion to increase statewide water storage by less than one percent, and to send water to Southern California real estate developments in the desert and to Big Ag, which sell the water at a profit.
But you can make a difference! But you must act, the deadline is Sept. 30!
- Sign this petition created by the Sacred Land Film Project. All the signatures will be sent to the Bureau on Sept. 30.
