Prevent environmental disaster in North County

Hearings in Riverside may seal fate of pit mine



A monumental environmental conflict of interest that is raging concerning the pristine wilderness area in northeast Fallbrook. Granite Construction, a multi-billion-dollar company, has its intention staked on developing the largest open-pit mine in the USA just over the Riverside County line at the Rainbow connection to highway 15.

The effects of this development would ruin the SDSU research being done at the Santa Margarita Ecological Reserve adjacent to the proposed mine site, obliterate the wildlife linkage between the Santa Ana and Palomar Mountain ranges, threaten the water quality in the Santa Margarita River (Camp Pendletonís water source), increase the traffic on highway 15 by 1400 truck trips entering and exiting the Rainbow on and off ramps daily (a truck every minute), and add immensely to the noise and air pollution of this quiet rural area. Not only will the pollution be hazardous to the health of the local population, it will be detrimental to property values.

Attend Temecula's Public Annexation Hearing on Thursday, June 4, 2009 @ 9:00 am at the Riverside Country Administration Building in the first floor Boardroom (4080 Lemon Street, Riverside).
