Re: [RC] Auburn Dam - Angie Fura

Overpopulation is one root cause.  Not conserving a limited natural resource is another.   I just visited California recently, both the north and south regions.  I saw plenty of sprinklers watering plants, grasses, and shrubs that aren't natural to that area.  I also saw plenty of swimming pools and car washes. 
Destroying a signifigant piece of our country's and our sport's cultural heritage is not acceptable.  To me, its the same as cutting down the Sequoias to provide low cost heating in the winter.

Hi Patty,
"Sorry, not endurance related..." Only if you think that covering up the Western States Trail/Tevis Cup Ride Trail, No Hands Bridge and the North and Middle Forks of the American River Canyons under tons of water is NOT significantly related to endurance. 
Those of us who live near Auburn feel differently and think of the Auburn Dam as a real bad idea for many reasons. 
Maybe overpopulation is the real the problem instead of not enough water.
