Action Alert: Rally To Clean Up The Klamath on October 25, 12:30 pm

Here's the updated action alert on tomorrow's rally from Regina Chichizola,the Klamath Riverkeeper: 

Help us turn in a letter on toxic algae for over 35 groups and Senator Chesbro at the State Water Resources Control Board, 1001 I st. Sacramento at 12:30 pm 

Join Klamath tribal members, the Klamath Riverkeeper, fishermen, and other Klamath residents on October 25th at 12:30 p.m. to ask the State Water Resource Board (SWRB) to CLEAN UP THE KLAMATH AND SAVE THE KLAMATH SALMON. The opportunity to ask state officials to deal with pollution through the Clean Water Act comes as a triennial review every three years. We will get a Klamath comment period at the hearing from 1-1:30 to talk about the Klamath fisheries, dams and toxic algae. 

Ask the State Water Resource Board (SWRB) to CLEAN UP THE KLAMATH AND SAVE THE KLAMATH SALMON. The opportunity to ask state officials to deal with pollution through the Clean Water Act comes as a triennial review every three years. 

This is our chance to tell California water managers to UN-DAM THE KLAMATH and to protect our river and river-based economies. Cleaning up the Klamath is a key part of bringing the Klamath salmon back. Water boards have the power to not give the Klamath dams necessary permits, and to deal with poor water quality watershed wide. Currently, toxic algae is not addressed in the review, though the area with the toxic algae below Iron Gate Dam is. 

We will have a peaceful demonstration for the Klamath River at 12:30 and testify on what the Klamath River and Salmon mean to us at the public forum at 1 p.m. For more information, call Regina cell 541-951-0126.
