Flaming Gorge Pipeline - Green River Scoping Meeting

April 20, 2009 6:30-9 p.m. Public meeting at Fossil Ridge High School 5400 Ziegler Rd, Ft. Collins

Discuss Million Pipeline proposed to take 250,000 acre feet of water out of the Green yearly.

Here is some feedback from the Green River, WY meeting on April 14 provided by Dave Nickum. Note that the opposition still needs to get more specific in its objections.

Just a quick note regarding the first USCOE scoping meeting this evening in Green River -

Depending on who gave the guess, estimates on attendance ranged between 300-400 people - and it was an unruly crowd to say the least. The USCOE gave introductory remarks and then Mr. Million discussed the proposal. When it was handed back to the USCOE facilitator, it got testy fast. The crowd wasn't tolerating the "open house" style approach, and so they were allowed to make individual remarks. No informal testimony supported the project.

The local TU chapter president did a great job when his hand was called, and the Mayor of Green River and representative from the Sweetwater County Commission both hammered the proposal to cheers. A ton of local fisherman said their peace - with apparent prejudice. The USCOE finally cut off individual speakers when it was apparent similar testimony would go on till midnight if allowed. One thing Cathy and I noticed was the presence of damn near every elected local official within 80 miles of Green River. We sat down briefly with Rep. Stan Blake (a good TU friend from the legislative session and member of the House Ag. Committee) and Rep. Joe Barbuto after the meeting and they were adamant regarding the local opposition to the proposal. Base on this evening, it's going to be fascinating how subsequent scoping meetings play out. We also heard a rumor that the USCOE printed 50 handouts for the meeting (they also only had about 8 suitcases of soft drink cans) - so I'm betting they were surprised at the turnout.

That's the quick update - it's past my bedtime.

All the best -
