SAVE THE PEAKS! PUBLIC HEARING • TAKE ACTION!Join us on July 29th at 5PM at Sinagua High School!
On July 29th the Flagstaff City Water Commission will be holding a public hearing to determine
whether or not they will approve a contract to sell ground water to Arizona Snowbowl instead of treated sewage effluent.
Please join us for this very important meeting.
Sinagua High School is located at 3950 East Butler Avenue Flagstaff, AZ.
We are also asking you to join us in contacting Flagstaff City Council members and Flagstaff Water Commission members and urge them NOT to approve a new contract to sell Flagstaff's precious drinking water for (but not limited to) the following reasons:
• Water is Life! Water is scarce in Northern Arizona and it should not be treated as a resource for recreation.
• Water for Flagstaff! Flagstaff's water is needed for its citizens not a private business located
outside of Flagstaff's City limits.
• Respect Indigenous Peoples ways of life! Indigenous Nations are opposed to snowmaking with groundwater. The Hopi Tribe has historically and consistently been opposed to snowmaking
with any kind of water.
• The Snowbowl controversy has divided the Flagstaff community. City officials have the opportunity to choose to do the right thing and begin to heal the wounds that they are in part responsible for.
• The USDA is offering federal money to the tune of $11 million to help pay for this water. That comes out of our pockets. Don't let them subsidize racism and disrespect.
For Flagstaff City Council contact information, please see below. Please contact them
immediately and show your dismay for the idea to use our precious drinking water to prop up a ski area in a desert.
