"With public sentiment, nothing can fail; without it, nothing can succeed. Consequently, he who molds public sentiment goes deeper than he who enacts statutes or pronounces decisions."
- Abraham Lincoln

Save The Poudre: Poudre Waterkeeper and all of our partners encourage groups and individuals to sign the following resolution – the more, the better! Please consider asking your organization to join with all of us to save one of America's most endangered rivers.

Our Joint Resolution

Whereas the Cache la Poudre River and its environment are key public and natural resources supporting an important fishery, recreational opportunities, habitat for other wildlife; and irreplaceable aesthetic values; and

Whereas the economic, environmental and social benefits derived from the fishing, recreational and other opportunities provided by the Cache La Poudre River depend substantially on the health of the River, including adequate stream flows throughout the year; and

Whereas flow regimes have already been significantly altered, and further diminution of Poudre River stream flows would negatively affect the health of the river; and

Whereas the full cumulative impacts of the Northern Integrated Supply Project (NISP) on stream flow, habitat and water quality are as yet unknown, especially in combination with other projects proposed for the Northern Colorado region; and

Whereas water conservation, municipal partnerships with agriculture, and water reuse can satisfy water demand at the least environmental and economic cost.

Be it Resolved:

That the undersigned groups and individuals hold forth that before committing to new storage of water from the Poudre River; all participants in NISP must fully integrate comprehensive conservation, water reuse, efficiency improvements, and demand management techniques into the water supply planning process; and

That any new water storage and related distribution infrastructure can only be undertaken upon adequate scientific demonstration that there will be no net environmental degradation to the Poudre River or environs; and

That the public must be fully and adequately involved in the planning process to ensure that project developers understand and minimize these environmental and socioeconomic impacts.
