Help Save Mono Lake

from Mono Lake Committee

Now is an important time to speak up for Mono Lake!

Despite January’s wet weather, Mono Lake’s surface elevation is so low that an intervention is needed.

The Mono Lake Committee has asked the State Water Board to suspend stream diversions until the lake rises enough to protect wildlife and the ecosystem, and to quickly schedule a hearing to implement long-term stream diversion changes that will ensure Mono Lake can rise to the healthy, sustainable level mandated by the Board decades ago.

We are urging people to write a letter to the State Water Board to ask that stream diversions be suspended and a hearing scheduled. You can personalize and send a letter here.


Next Wednesday, February 15, the State Water Board is holding an online, public information-gathering workshop to evaluate the Committee’s request for emergency action and to “discuss the status of lake levels and solicit input on next steps the Board should consider.”

Thank you for being vigilant with us and ready to speak up for Mono Lake at a moment’s notice. Now is the time.

Long Live Mono Lake!
