The Medicine Lake Highlands, also sacredly known to the Pit River People, the lead plaintiffs, as "Saht Tit Lah" (Obsidian Knife Lake) has been a place of special significance. To this day, Indigenous people come from near and far to utilize this sacred place on a regular basis for healing, religious ceremony, and tribal gatherings.

The Medicine Lake Highlands continue to face destructive geothermal development by Calpine Energy Corporation. Five new proposed geothermal power plant projects threaten to poison the sacred waters of Medicine Lake.
