CLCVEF works on a statewide level. The work funded by this grant would focus on, but not be limited to, Riverside County and San Bernadino County residents and elected officials.
Project Description:

To stop California state legislation AB 1720, which threatens the aquifer under Joshua Tree, creates unwarranted and needless exemptions for its pumping, and authorizes a wasteful hydroelectric energy storage project in the town of Eagle Crest in Riverside County. CLCVEF will continue its long standing effort to halt this project, employing a multifaceted communications campaign across California that raises public awareness about the bill and exposes the corruption and true intentions of the supporting company, NextEra.
