Calling All Water Warriors!
In 2013 Governor Hickenlooper directed the Colorado Water Conservation Board (CWCB) to develop the first state-wide Water Plan. To help steer development of a Plan that champions conservation and efficiency, the Sierra Club has initiated a campaign to engage our members and supporters, guide public input, and pressure the CWCB and the Governor to set a positive course for water use. Whether you live in Denver, Durango or the Eastern Plains, you and the rivers you love stand to be affected by Colorado’s Water Plan. Are you interested in guiding Sierra Club participation in the process? We’re looking for volunteers and team members. Please sign up here for more information.
Roan Plateau Protected... For Now
Sierra Club, with a coalition of other organizations, and represented by Earthjustice, via court decision, shot a hole in the decision-making processes that the Bureau of Land Management used to develop Bush Administration era oil and gas leasing plans on Colorado's Roan Plateau. The Roan Plateau is wilderness-quality land, but designated for energy development by the BLM. We've won this round; read-on for details
Elk Creek Coal Mine Expansion Averted
The United States Forest Service, challenged by a coalition of environmental organizations including the Sierra Club Rocky Mountain Chapter, reversed their prior approvals of the expansion of the Elk Creek coal mine on the western slope of Colorado! This expansion, aside from the direct damage to our local and global air quality, mercury pollution in our waterways and lands through burning coal, and pushing clean energy solutions and clean energy jobs away from improving our economy, would have created methane exhaust on bulldozed pads with new roads in what is now a beautiful, inventoried, roadless area that is worth protecting.
