Hi, the state is trying to get a bill passed that would allow Dept. of Ecology to bypass minimum instream flow laws in favor of economic interests and there's an easy way you can help.

There is a really short form that just requires typing your address, clicking 'Verify District', and clicking "Oppose" if you are against this bill, SB 5003.  In the comment box "I oppose this bill" is sufficient.

Link is here:  https://app.leg.wa.gov/pbc/bill//5003

This would have a potentially HUGE effect on the Sunset Falls hydro project approval which is still crawling forward even though financially the hydro project would be a money pit for Snohomish County ratepayers, the instream flows are the biggest stumbling block right now.

Thanks for your support and SYOTR.

Thanks so much you guys and all the others who are speaking up! I'm putting it in this post too so it stays in view:
