I found this link on Cascade cruisers site, I wheeled the Rubicon last year and hope to again and again.
We’re using a different angle to submit information to the Regional Water Quality Board – and we need your help, each and every one of you.
We need to get as many signed affidavits as possible faxed back to us prior to March 31st at 888.6.RUBICON (678-2426). If you can scan it and email that is good also, actually, even better!!
Basically, what we are doing is proving to the Regional Board that any closure action would be simply moving what they perceive to be a problem to other areas, and that they will not be solving anything by shutting down the Trail. More to the point, it shows that any action they take would effect other areas, and would need to be reviewed under the California Environmental Quality (CEQA) Act! The Regional Water Quality Board believes they are exempt from CEQA since their actions do not affect others – we’re showing the opposite.
The following affidavit can be signed by anyone who has ever been on the trail (driver or passengers). Please don’t change the language included – but you may *ADD* testimony of the specifics of your use (dates, number of times, langth, etc.). This affidavit can be signed in any US state – please print, sign, and fax it to 888.6.RUBICON (678-2426). If members of your household, family, club, etc. have accompanied you to the Rubicon, please forward to them as well!
