The Water Forum Agreement is a package of linked elements with two, co-equal objectives:
To provide a reliable water supply for planned development to the year 2030, and
To preserve the Sacramento region's environmental crown jewel, the lower American River.
Save Auburn Ravine Salmon and Steelhead(sarsas.org) is trying to do with one stream, the Auburn Ravine, what must be done to all streams and rivers on the entire West Coast: make the entire length navigable for anadromous fish. Their goal is to work collaboratively and cooperatively to modify the twelve man-made barriers and six plus beaver dams on the Auburn Ravine to make them passable for fish.
SARSAS believes (as does TU!) that the health and well-being of Salmon is directly linked to that of people. If we improve the health and well-being of Salmon, we improve the health and well-being of mankind and therefore ourselves. Salmon are as resilient and adaptive as humans; when they can no longer adapt, neither can mankind.
