Time to Take Action
Our Klamath Basin Water Crisis
Upholding rural Americans' rights to grow food,
own property, and caretake our wildlife and natural resources.
 

            Move the C.O.B.

The energy facility would take land out of exclusive farm use.  The land would have to be rezoned for industrial.   We do not want the noise and air pollution in Langell Valley.


Flash!!! Now that Peoples Energy of Chicago is proposing that they amend their application and build their facility as an air cooled plant which will use 300 gallons of water per minute instead of 7588 gallons of water per minute, they will not need access to the Babson well.  We have two suggested solutions:

1. Build their air cooled energy facility at the old Weyerhaeuser location near Klamath Falls which is         already zoned for industrial.  Access to power lines and gas is available there and they wouldn't             have to build miles of pipeline for water.  It would be closer to railroad and airport.           
                or
2. Buy the CoGen facility and solve two problems by helping the city of Klamath Falls with that                 financial problem.
