Big Pine Paiute Vs LADWP Rally #WaterIsLife #FIXTHEPIPE

  • Los Angeles Department of Water & Power 111 N Hope St Los Angeles, California 90012 (map)

Calling all water protectors!
The Big Pine Tribe of the Owens Valley Paiute will be coming to LA to engage in the public comment at the LADWP meeting regarding the continued fight over their water sources. We are asking for everyone to come and support with a rally this Tuesday, as they meet with the DWP at 10am. This directly impacts us and our community here on Tongva land (aka LA basin), so please share and spread the word.

"The LA Deptartment of Water and Power refuses to allow us to fix a broken pipe which provides us our allowed allotment of irrigation water. Last year alone, Big Pine Tribe received less than 30% of our own water from tube mountains due to DWP turning it off due to a leak they refuse to fix". -Sage Romero (Big Pine Paiute Tribe)
