Stop the Destruction of Granite Bay's Shoreline!

While we the undersigned fully support the purpose of the Bureau of Reclamation's Folsom Dam Safety and Flood Damage Reduction plan, we oppose the Bureau's last-minute insertion of a contingency element that would allow the mining and excavation of the shoreline area below Mooney Ridge directly adjacent to the community of Granite Bay. We object to the potential exposure of the entire Granite Bay community, including children attending nearby Cavitt Middle School, as well as Folsom Lake State Park visitors to serious and unnecessary health hazards as well as the destruction of a unique and natural environment currently accessible to all park users. We the undersigned demand that the Bureau of Reclamation remove this "Preferred Alternative" from the Environmental Impact Statement/Environmental Impact Report "EIS/EIR", and use commercially available material sources instead of in-reservoir "borrow" materials to make up any potential shortfall, as recommended in the report.
