    the public s money on this scheme and focus instead on common sense solutions including water conservation and water sharing agreements with farmers Posted in Uncategorized Almost EVERYBODY opposes the Flaming Gorge Pipeline Posted on February 6 2012 by admin Conservation Groups Chambers of Commerce City Councils County Commissions and over 250 Businesses Oppose the Flaming Gorge Pipeline One of Save the Colorado s campaigns is to help stop the proposed Flaming Gorge Pipeline Costing up to 9 billion this pipeline would take 80 billion gallons of water out of the Green River in Southwest Wyoming each year pipe and pump it 500 miles across Wyoming over the Continental Divide and down to the rapidly growing Colorado Front Range from Fort Collins to Denver to Pueblo to subsidize and fuel new population growth Over the past few months dozens of entities including conservation organizations chambers of commerce city councils and county commissions in Colorado Wyoming and Utah have spoken up to oppose the pipeline The opposition list also called intervenors in the pipeline s permitting process reads like a dream come true coalition that spans the political as well as the Western culture aisle Of note a coalition of over 250 businesses also has spoken out to oppose the pipeline You can read about it in the Wyoming Business Report here We depend on anglers rafters birders and hikers coming to our communities to fuel our economy said Lisa Jenkins executive director of Grand Lake Area Chamber of Commerce in Colorado This massive siphoning of water will decrease flows in the Green River by 20 25 percent and cripple the annual 10 billion recreation based economies that communities like Grand Lake depend on for our survival quoted from the Wyoming Business Report Save the Colorado opposes the pipeline because it would be bad for the Green and Colorado Rivers bad for the Southwest s recreational economy and would further endanger fish and wildlife downstream all the way to Mexico The State of Colorado has appointed a committee to study the Flaming Gorge Pipeline Because the environmental community does not support the pipeline we also do not support wasting the public s money on the efforts of this State committee and thus we have boycotted participating in the committee s meetings Instead we support common sense water conservation programs in cities and water sharing agreements with farmers these programs and agreements would be cheaper faster and more sustainable solutions to address Colorado s future water supply needs Sometimes you have to take a stand it appears almost EVERYBODY has taken a stand to oppose the Flaming Gorge Pipeline Posted in Uncategorized Dammed If We Don t by Yvon Chouinard Posted on January 12

Kellett Glen Canyon Institute 801 363 4450 Colorado River Protection Coalition Intervenes Against Flaming Gorge Pipeline Federal Energy Regulatory Commission Should Not Waste Resources On Unbuildable Scheme Denver CO Today a coalition of 10 conservation groups from Colorado Utah Wyoming and Arizona the Colorado River Protection Coalition moved to intervene in the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission FERC review of the Regional Watershed Supply Project a k a the Flaming Gorge Pipeline FERC is currently evaluating a preliminary permit application for the Flaming Gorge Pipeline from Wyco Power and Water Inc FERC allows members of the public with a stake in projects to intervene in preliminary permit proceedings and the Colorado River Protection Coalition represented by Earthjustice has called upon FERC to deny the permit on numerous grounds The Flaming Gorge Pipeline would be one of the biggest most environmentally damaging water projects in the history of the western United States said McCrystie Adams of Earthjustice the Coalition s lead attorney The Pipeline would devastate the Green River one of the West s last great rivers and a sanctuary for native fish and wildlife and severely harm the Colorado River downstream In its intervention comments the Colorado River Protection Coalition asserted that the Flaming Gorge Pipeline is extremely unlikely to be permitted because it would likely violate the Endangered Species Act would adversely affect four national wildlife refuges and part of the project would be located in a U S Forest Service roadless area The Coalition also argued that the permit should be denied because the applicant failed to meet various requirements during a previous attempt at permitting a nearly identical project with the U S Army Corps of Engineers Further the Coalition asserted that the Pipeline is an extremely environmentally damaging water supply project that would irrevocably harm the Green and Colorado Rivers not a hydropower project and thus FERC is not the appropriate agency to lead federal review of the proposal The Flaming Gorge Pipeline would severely harm the Wyoming landscape it crosses said Steve Jones of the Wyoming Outdoor Council Our state s heritage wildlife and economy are dependent on protecting roadless and wilderness areas Four endangered fish the Colorado pikeminnow humpback chub razorback sucker and bonytail chub are dependent on the water this pipeline proposes to drain out of the Green and Colorado Rivers said Taylor McKinnon of the Center for Biological Diversity in Flagstaff Arizona The pipeline would spell disaster for those fish and the river ecosystems we and they depend on It s a foolish proposal in the face of global warming and projected declines in river flows The Green River flows through Utah s largest roadless area provides 40 percent of the water entering the Colorado River at Lake Powell each year and supports a world famous trout fishery averaging 6 000 8 000 fish per mile said Zach Frankel executive director of the Utah Rivers Council This catastrophic proposal would not only mar these treasures it would forever alter life in Utah The applicant previously sought a permit for the Pipeline from a different federal agency the U S Army Corps of Engineers Corps In July of 2011 the Corps terminated its review of the project because the applicant missed multiple deadlines and did not provide information requested by the Corps A few months later the applicant redesigned the project to include some incidental hydropower components and requested review through FERC Despite the modifications the project remains a huge energy hog at least nine air polluting natural gas fired pumping stations would be required to pump the water uphill across Wyoming and over the Continental Divide Wyco s president has acknowledged that pumping the water uphill would use more energy than the project would create through hydropower We know this project would burn more energy than it produces said John Spahr of the Sierra Club Claiming it is a hydropower project is nothing more than a thinly veiled attempt to make an end run around federal law Since its inception the extremely controversial Flaming Gorge Pipeline has met with great opposition in Colorado Wyoming and Utah The water would go to the Front Range of Colorado which is projected to double in population in the next 50 years Colorado is already a parched state with severely depleted rivers while the majority of the water in Colorado s cities is used to keep lawns green for three months in the hot dry summer across sprawling suburban landscapes Duane Short of Biodiversity Conservation Alliance noted The Coalition believes that Colorado and other western citizens are beginning to realize that unbridled consumption of water from our rivers and aquifers will leave our precious water resources depleted leading to even more severe water shortages for our children and grandchildren We hope the public will work with us to prevent this shortsighted and irresponsible water grab The Flaming Gorge Pipeline would be a flaming disaster for Colorado said Gary Wockner of Save the Poudre Poudre Waterkeeper The Pipeline would be a devastating step backwards for water supply policy and river protection in Colorado and the Southwest U S our coalition will work as long and hard as it takes to stop this project This Coalition s intervention is one of several being filed by public interest groups and local communities Over a hundred public comments urging FERC to deny the preliminary permit have already been filed before the Dec 19th deadline Comments are posted on FERC s website here http elibrary ferc gov idmws docket search asp search for Docket Number P 14263 The

sources either from the Colorado River or from the rivers in northern California By recycling their water San Diegans can increase their water supply reliability as well as be better stewards of limited Southwest U S water supplies San Diego Coaskeeper has been working for years with a large coalition to bring water recycling to life in the region The facility just opened amidst much regional news coverage Dubbed Showers to Flowers the facility recycles the City s wastewater and after purfication sends it into the regional irrigation system that is used for lawn watering and commercial irrigation needs After the City receives approval from the California Dept of Health the water will eventually be recycled and sent into a nearby reservoir and used for drinking water The facility uses advanced reverse osmosis technology to purify the water which is used in similar systems all over the world After the system is proven reliable and safe in San Diego the City hopes to increase capacity beyond the 1 million gallons per day of the current system One million galons per day is about 1 000 acre feet per year The Save the Colorado River campaign has supported San Diego Coastkeeper s efforts to promote water conservation and recycling in San Diego We see water recycling as one of the solutions to Southwest U S and Colorado River water problems If San Diego can do it can Denver do it Can Las Vegas do it The answer is yes of course and we applaud the City of San Diego and San Diegans for taking this sustainable step forward we encourage you find more ways to lead
