WE ARE A GROUP OF LAKE ELSINORE NEIGHBORS DEDICATED
TO SAVING OUR MOST VALUABLE ASSET, THE LAKE

WHY YOU SHOULD BE INVOLVED?

Property values drop and businesses close up when the lake is not an asset to our community, which reflects on all of us, our chosen home, business, and playground. Our speaker at this meeting will be Pat Kilroy, one of the most knowledgeable experts about Lake Elsinore, it’s history, it’s problems. Pat was the lake guru from 1994 to 2014. There will be time for questions, and a brief explanation of what this self-appointed group is about.

SAVE OUR LAKE!

Kill off all the fish; Drain the lake; Close the lake for one year, and maybe more: Property values plummet, especially for waterfront properties; Receive no compensation; Ortega highway and Grand Avenue very heavy traffic with big trucks carrying huge loads up the Ortegas. If this does not sound good to you, you better come to our meeting and see what you can do to stop this madness. Now it is our turn to weigh in with the authorities on the madness of changing our lake into a pumped storage project for the benefit of a few entrepreneurs who would turn our lake into a muddy pond to benefit San Diego’s electric energy needs. The City, the Water District, several homeowner groups have all responded to the threat, and now it is our turn to speak up and demand our rights. As waterfront property owners, we are the most affected group, and our rights as riparian property owners are in the strongest possible position: (below us are the water appropriators: (the City and the Water District), and now is the time for us to act! We can lose our primary position by not stating our legal position to the Federal agency, (FERC) that would authorize the project. Please join us on February 26. Questions?

WHAT IS A WATER SHED?

A Watershed is an area of land that drains into a lake or river. As rainwater and melting snow run downhill, they carry sediment and other materials into our streams, lakes and groundwater.

Watersheds provide water for drinking, irrigation and streams. Many people also enjoy the lakes and streams for their beauty, boating, fishing and swimming. Healthy watersheds also provide food and shelter for wildlife.The Lake Elsinore and San Jacinto Watershed covers over 720 square miles, starting in the San Jacinto Mountains, running westerly through Canyon Lake and ending in Lake Elsinore.
