Don’t flood the canyon lands

Re: “Land trust holds conservation easements on acreage threatened with inundation of Garden Bar Dam,” (Journal, Oct. 13), I am against the building of a dam on the Bear River between Lake Combie and Camp Far West Reservoir. I think the environmental impact of a dam being there is a bad thing. The canyon lands and wildlife behind the dam would be flooded and killed if a dam is built there, and this would be a horrible tragedy. Since the Southern California Water District has paid for the studies of the dam, it seems that they are just trying to get our water. I think we should find another solution to South Sutter’s water problems without building a dam. South Sutter’s rice-growing agriculture is important, but they need to find the water from somewhere else. Meanwhile, we need our water. CONNOR MUNOZ, student, Auburn
