Resolution of the Redwood Coast Chamber of Commerce, of the California counties of Mendocino and Sonoma, opposing the export of Gualala River Water.
The Redwood Coast Chamber of Commerce serves communities from Fort Ross in Sonoma County to Irish Beach in Mendocino County. The Chamber currently enjoys the membership and support of over 150 local businesses, cottage industries and other non-profit organizations.
The Chamber concurs with our member organization, Friends of the Gualala River, in the protest against extracting water from the Gualala River for numerous environmental issues and in particular, the Redwood Coast Chamber of Commerce recognizes that pristine views of a non-industrialized estuary and ocean are key features of the area and upon which our local economy is heavily dependent.
Therefore, be it resolved that the Redwood Coast Chamber of Commerce supports the resolutions of the Boards of Supervisors of both Mendocino and Sonoma Counties opposing the export of Gualala River water (permit application #31194 for Alaska Water/Gualala River) and supports the many concerns listed therein.
President, Redwood Coast Chamber of Commerce
