No, as far as I know, there are no threats to dewater Cherry Creek. Sorry to get your attention that way.
However, in Seattle we are facing that nightmare: one of our best local class V runs, Ernie’s Canyon of the NF Snoqualmie, has an open application for a run of the river diversion. This would basically destroy a great run that flows almost year round.
At this point, what we need to do is show that there is significant opposition to this. Can each and every one of you please got to the FERC website and post a comment stating that you are against this project? Even if you have never paddled this stretch, your voice will make a difference.
Seriously, please take the 5 minutes to file a comment. It's really easy to do. Saying something as simple as "As a kayaker, I'm against putting in a diversion that would destroy a high-quality whitewater run" isn't too much to ask.
