⚠ Cuff's Run Is in Danger ⚠ We Need Your Help!

To our concerned membership,

Once again Cuffs Run is being threatened with the placement of a pump storage dam. A few days ago, incredibly, the FERC (Federal Energy Regulatory Commission) gave preliminary approval to the plans. Obviously, flooding Cuffs Run ravine and the five hundred acres surrounding it would be detrimental to our trail as well as the involved homes and farmland.

We are rallying the troops with e-comments and letters to FERC in protest. If you would like to participate in this effort, provided below is the means to do so. We have just 12 days left to provide comments.

Thank you!

-Ruthie Fraczek

M-DTS President
