Purchase book


The following gives names and addresses for some potential policy makers and media outlets that could benefit from a copy of the book. These are folks and organizations that have the ability to publicize, influence, and potentially stop the wasteful expansion of Gross Reservoir. If you know of additional folks that should be listed, send me their contact info.

When purchasing the book, you can indicate the recipient's address at checkout. Or you can deliver it on your own and add a personalized note.

If you get a chance, drop me a line and let me know to whom you sent a copy of the book. That way I can offer online suggestions about policy makers and media outlets that have not yet received a copy. As of 12/08/2011 we have book donations for all three Boulder County Commissioners and Colorado Public Radio! Thank you! We still need to get books to the Denver Post, the Daily Camera, and others.

And help spread the word! Post your purchase (and the recipient) on your Facebook page and on the Facebook group Stop Gross Dam!


A list of policy makers:

More than any other group, the Boulder County Commissioners can influence the future direction of Gross Dam and have the power to stop the expansion project. The commissioners are Cindy Domenico, Will Toor, and Ben Pearlman.
