Stop Sites Reservoirs
Help us oppose the new $ 4.7 billion proposals to build up to 11 new dams and two new large reservoirs on 14,000 acres off of the Sacramento River. The new Sites and Holthouse Reservoirs (from the Sites and Golden Gate Dams) in Northern California could store up to 1.8 million acre feet of water, making them almost half the size of Shasta Reservoir and twice the size of Folsom reservoir. They would be owned by the Sites Project Authority, which is made up mainly of State Water Project (SWP) water contractors and irrigation districts. The authority is already offering new water rights in watersheds where five times more water is allocated than exists to powerful water districts, such as the Metropolitan Water District. A previously filed water rights application for the Sites project asked for 3 million acre feet of water a year.
No Shasta Dam Raise. Bring the Salmon Home
Save California’s Salmon stands behind the Winnemem Wintu Tribes’ efforts to Bring Salmon Home to the Upper Sacramento and McCloud Rivers though a salmon water that would go around the Shasta Dam. We also stand behind their efforts to stop the Shasta Dam raise, which would flood more of their sacred sites:

Stop the Pacific Connector Pipeline
Save California Salmon supports the work of the Klamath River Tribes to stop the Pacific Connector pipeline from crossing the Klamath River. This 233 mile pipeline and fracked gas export project would trample the rights of landowners through use of eminent domain, disturb tribal territories and burial grounds, threaten 400 waterways, put existing jobs in fishing, tourism, and other sectors at risk.
The pipeline would cross the Klamath River near the Keno Reservoir on the Klamath River, which is already the most polluted part of the Klamath River. Poor water quality in the Keno Reservoir from agriculture and industrial pollution is a major impediment bringing the Klamath salmon home to the upper Klamath basin. We can not afford a oil leak in the Klamath River.
