UPPER SOUTH EAST COMMUNITIES COALITION, INC - Environmental Preservation Group in Washoe County
Open Forum/Comments

October 8, 2014

The majority of people working to try and stop this project in this location are working class people or retired seniors. While we continue to ask for their support and they have been so helpful and generous, we need to expand our contribution base to be able to continue our campaign.
Our campaign is critical to the protection of the last of the flood plains, open spaces and wetlands in the area. It is critical to the protection of the surrounding environment that the methyl mercury and the arsenic that is prevalent in the area due to historic mining on the Comstock, remain stagnate and is not disturbed. It is critical to the entire Truckee Meadows that this land remain open space as it is the very last areas of flood storage that the region has. We work everyday to safeguard these things from the single minded obsession of our local government to build this massive infrastructure in this area when there are other viable routes for this project that would be less environmentally damaging and/or less expensive
