Stanford University is proposing a controversial Habitat Conservation Plan (HCP) that continues to ignore the effects Searsville Dam has on endangered species like Steelhead trout.
In less than a minute, you can leave a public comment on the Environmental Impact Study that tells Stanford — and federal agencies — to own up to the damage caused by Stanford’s leaky, silted-in Searsville dam.
From the Change.org site:
Federal wildlife officials are poised to finalize Stanford University’s deeply flawed Habitat Conservation Plan, a move that would compromise the health of San Francisquito Creek and San Francisco Bay, while posing new flooding and Searsville Dam safety concerns. Adoption of this 50-year plan, and associated federal permits to allow Stanford to incidentally harm and kill endangered species like steelhead trout, would be a major setback for ongoing watershed planning efforts to implement comprehensive habitat restoration and improve regional flood protection.
