Help Save Mono Lake

from Mono Lake Committee

There’s still time to make your voice heard for Mono Lake! Submit your comment letter by Friday, March 24 at 4:00pm PDT to urge the State Water Board to suspend water diversions by the Los Angeles Department of Water & Power until the lake level rises enough to avert the current ecological crises and to schedule a hearing quickly to implement long-term stream diversion changes that will ensure Mono Lake rises to the healthy, sustainable level mandated by the State Water Board decades ago.

Despite this year’s wet winter, Mono Lake is still critically low—just 25% of the way to the level mandated by the State Water Board. The Board must act to preserve the lake level gains of this and any future year, suspending stream diversions until the lake reaches a healthy level.



Thank you to the 1,100 Mono Lake Committee members and supporters who have already submitted comment letters to the State Water Board. Your words are making an impact. We will keep you informed on the Board’s next steps, including what management actions the Board takes following the workshop and comment period.

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