PIT RIVER TRIBE OF CALIFORNIA UNANIMOUSLY
RESOLVES TO PROTECT MEDICINE LAKE HIGHLANDS
FROM INDUSTRIAL DEVELOPMENT:
"On February 15, 2013, The Pit River Tribe unanimously affirmed a resolution opposing geothermal and other industrial developments in the sacred Medicine Lake Highlands.
The resolution affirms that geothermal development would threaten the underlying aquifer and would result in the injection of toxins into the atmosphere and waters. Further the Tribe maintains that the construction and development of even a single geothermal power generation plant would result in irreversible impacts to the sensitive cultural resources of the highlands and devastate the habitats of plants and animals. The Tribal resolution calls upon the Bureau of Land Management and the United States Forest Service to reject all proposed geothermal development in the sacred Medicine Lake Highlands."

I have only seen pictures of Medicine Lake and its beauty is almost beyond belief. The country around it is pristine as is the lake itself.
