Feeling political?

Oregon TU Members we need your help,

Tell the Oregon Legislature - Vote No on SB1584 Protect Flows for Salmon and Steelhead

Please help stop a major threat to Oregon's salmon and steelhead runs that is being rushed through the state legislature. Senate Bill 1584 would rollback crucial fish protection and water conservation planning standards.

These standards apply to new development of old water rights by some cities on streams with struggling fish populations. Current standards help ensure that cities use water in ways that allow imperiled salmon, steelhead, and other native fish to persist in the waterways affected by their water use, while also requiring the cities to implement basic, proven water conservation measures. SB 1584 would allow an exemption from these crucial protections.

Please take action today,
