Your Voices Make a Difference: Agency Downsizes Gila River Diversion Plans

IMG 4197tbroska

By Mark Allison, Executive Director

In the face of fierce organizing by conservationists and overwhelming public opposition, proponents of diverting the Gila River have abandoned the Gila Upper Box as one of their recommended sites. This area is of particular importance to us due to its wilderness quality and ecological sensitivity.  It also appears that they are backing away from their original plans for a massive, billion-dollar project to a more “modest” $100 million diversion.

Here is proof positive that your voices make a difference!  And while we should all celebrate our victory, our work to defeat the Gila diversion if far from done.
