The Keep Long Valley Green Coalition continues to bring together ranchers, environmentalists, recreationalists, local residents, and tribal governments. We magnify voices and raise awareness about LADWP’s dewatering proposal. We also clearly show decision makers how drying of valley meadows would devastate the natural environment and local economy.
Currently the coalition includes:
Friends of the Inyo
The Mono Lake Committee
The Sierra Club Range of Light Chapter
Eastern Sierra Land Trust
Following the March 2021 court ruling, the coalition reiterated its demand that LADWP provide a binding yearly water supply (adjusted for precipitation) to keep Long Valley and Little Round Valley green, with a healthy environment and a sustainable economy.
We seek to work together with LADWP as a partner, not a vassal, and are confident that a mutually beneficial solution is within reach – one in which L.A. can meet all of its water needs AND significantly reduce water exports from the Eastern Sierra
