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.
Protect Colorado Schools from Hazardous Drilling and Fracking Projects
The Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission, appointed by Governor Hickenlooper, is about to approve permits for drilling projects that would place 19 horizontal wells and 20 holding tanks within 1,000 feet of the playground at Frontier Elementary School located in Greeley. If that wasn’t egregious enough, Mineral Resources, Inc. is also seeking a permit for 37 new wells within 350 feet of a low income apartment complex in downtown Greeley—with no notice to the residents of these rental units! Stand with the community in Greeley and help them tell Governor Hickenlooper to say “No Fracking Way” to a fracking rig next to their child’s school or in their backyard.
Send your letter today!
Tell Governor Hickenlooper we can’t allow fracking next to schools and homes.
