PROTECT GREAT BASIN NATIONAL PARK'S WATER

A coalition of farmers, ranchers, tribes, rural officials and conservationists needs your help to stop a dangerous water grab. We are putting aside our differences to block a water pipeline proposal that will drain the desert in order to benefit water wasters in Cedar City, UT.
The pipeline will siphon billions of gallons of water annually from rural aquifers under iconic places like Great Basin National Park and reduce the flows into the Great Salt Lake. Small businesses, recreation, wildlife and plant life will all suffer. Small counties will lose their water supply just so another county can have green lawns and unfettered development in the desert. Tribes will lose sacred sites. Farms and ranches will go dry. The desert won't be able to support life.
Water officials in Cedar City think they can steamroll us and build their 66-mile pipeline. We need you to help us show that we have power in numbers.
The project targets some of the driest regions in the nation's two driest states –– Nevada and Utah. USGS reports show that the pipeline project will have a 10,000-square-mile impact across the Great Basin –– affecting water supplies in an already parched region.
Help us tell the Central Iron County Water Conservancy District (CICWCD) to abandon its massive pipeline and water grab and invest in conservation programs like turf removal, water treatment facilities and other requirements to limit water waste.
CICWCD has no meaningful conservation programs and has increased its water use in past decades. Rather than spending hundreds of millions on building a pipeline, CICWCD must recognize that drought and climate change are only going to further limit water supplies.
Sign the petition if you believe that the west cannot afford water waste. Let's keep water local.
