As you know the proposed Gregory Canyon Landfill threatens the San Luis Rey River and its vital fresh water supplies. It would also desecrate a sacred mountain. The US Army Corps of Engineers will hold a public hearing to "scope" the contents of an Environmental Impact Statement being prepared for the project. We hope to get a large turnout to demonstrate opposition to the project. Testimony is welcome and should focus on the lack of demonstrable need for the landfill and the imperative of a Least Environmentally Damaging Practicable Alternative (LEDPA) that does not have the severe impacts associated with this site.

Please ATTEND the public meeting and tell the Army Corps of Engineers to protect our aquifers, the San Luis Rey river basin, the wildlife and precious drinking water supplies that come from this region! We need to make a bold statement; the more people who attend the meeting, the louder the message will be to the Corps.
It is important that the Army Corps get the message loud and clear that placing a garbage dump in a river basin makes NO SENSE! Garbage and water is a recipe for disaster.
