Project Description:

The Foothills Water Network is a coalition of groups involved in a coordinated grassroots campaign to stop the proposed Centennial dam. If built, this new dam would be located on the Bear River and would flood the last free-flowing and publicly accessible stretch of the Bear, destroying the native fishery, over 100 Native American cultural sites, popular recreation opportunities, and over 25 homes.
