Thanks to the Salida Citizen for the link.

The Salida Citizen is also running a piece from Linda Erickson with recommendations from representatives of the Sierra Club. From the post:

Suggestions from Steve Glazer and the Sierra Club:

– postpone any decision until a new hydrology study has been completed;
– that report should contain an inventory of all wetlands that could be impacted by the pumping or pipeline construction, a monitoring plan to reveal any changes impacting the wetlands, and most importantly–a mitigation plan to remediate identified impacts;
– set up a strategy to deal with potential injury to any other water users (that would be better than having to go to water court to address that potential injury);
– and require financial surety to pay for any impacts from the development and operation of the project.
