Send Email To Congressman Joe Neguse: I OPPOSE New Dams In Wilderness! About You First Name (required) Last Name (required) Your Email (required) Address City State/Region/Province Postal/Zip Code Phone Subject: Congressman Neguse: I OPPOSE new dams in the Holy Cross Wilderness Area Dear Congressman Neguse, I am writing to tell you that I OPPOSE new dams in the Holy Cross Wilderness Area in Colorado, and I oppose further draining the Colorado River and its tributaries. The U.S. Forest Service is being asked by the cities of Aurora and Colorado Springs to allow "test holes" to be drilled for proposed new dam sites in the Holy Cross Wilderness Area along Homestake Creek in Eagle County, Colorado. Further, these same cities are asking that nearly 500 acres be removed from Wilderness protection to allow for a proposed new dam on Homestake Creek. 1. I Oppose the drilling of these test holes for the new dam. 2. I Oppose removing land from the Holy Cross Wilderness Area. 3. I Oppose new dams that would further drain and destroy the Colorado River and its tributaries. Cities in the Denver to Colorado Springs area should learn to live within their means, not further drain our rivers. These cities should focus on water conservation and obtaining water that does not further degrade Colorado's already endangered rivers. Thank you for your work in the U.S. Congress and for protecting our Wilderness Areas and rivers!
