Groups Present Forum on Water Pipeline
Big Chino Pipeline and the Verde River:
Your Water, Your River, Your Future

PRESCOTT, Ariz.— Will Prescott’s citizens have to pay for the Big Chino pipeline? Is the pipeline really needed, and if so, when? Are there better alternatives? Will pumping at the Big Chino Water Ranch damage the Verde River? What is “mitigation” and why is it needed? Why should we protect the upper Verde River anyway? Learn the answers to these questions from a panel of eight experts at the forum “Big Chino Pipeline and the Verde River: Your Water, Your River, Your Future,” to be held Wednesday, January 28.

The discussion, sponsored by the Center for Biological Diversity, Citizens Water Advocacy Group, Sierra Club-Grand Canyon Chapter, and Arizona Wilderness Coalition, will take place from 5:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the Prescott College Crossroads Center, behind 220 Grove Ave. in Prescott. Pizza and beverages will be provided, beginning at 5:00 p.m., and information tables open at 4:00 p.m. For more info, call Joanne at (928) 772-8204 or email joellers@biologicaldiversity.org .
