Project Description:

This project is a river preservation campaign to stop the proposed Centennial Dam and instead establish protections for one of the last free flowing stretches of the Bear River through early stakeholder education and grassroots organization. Phase 4 will activate comments on the NEPA NOI (Spring 2017), the CEQA Draft Environmental Impact Report (Fall 2017), and SWRCB water rights hearings (Fall 2017). Coalition building will extend to and support the local Nisenan tribes, while continuing to expand citizen opposition to the project.
