Oregon: Say no to a massive new factory farm

Action: Stop Pollution

October 19, 2016   Action Alert ID# 439

 

Oregon officials are considering whether to permit a new factory farm in the northeast's Umatilla River Basin, and we need your help to stop this harmful project.

Let's be real: There's nothing remotely sustainable about 30,000 dairy cows stuffed into a concentrated feedlot. If approved the quaintly named "Lost Valley Ranch" would transform the basin into a wasteland.

Beyond the obvious water-quality concerns related to maintaining so many cows (which generates approximately as much excrement and urine as a medium-to-large city), the ranch developers intend to withdraw 890,000 gallons of water per day from the Lower Umatilla River. We can't let that happen. This basin supports an incredible range of wildlife including two kinds of fish -- bull trout and summer steelhead -- that are protected under the Endangered Species Act precisely because of threats including water withdrawal and diversions for agriculture, degraded water quality, and increased sedimentation.
