My journal is locked down, so I've put the content of the post here for people not on my flist to read:

No snowmaking on Snowbowl! Yes! The Appeals Court denied the owners of Snowbowl the right to make snow out of reclaimed water based on the following:

The appellants brought three claims:

1. The use of the recycled wastewater on the sacred San Francisco Peaks would violate the federal Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA). The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals UPHELD this claim by the plaintiffs.

2. The Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) on the project did not comply with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) on five counts. The appeals court UPHELD the claim on one count: that the FEIS did not thoroughly review the effect of human ingestion of snow made from treated effluent. It DENIED four other claims of FEIS inadequacy: Consideration of alternatives; other scientific perspectives, including the presence of hormones and endocrine disruptors in artificial snow; impact on the regional aquifer; and social and cultural impacts

3. The project violates the National Historic Preservation Act. The appeals court DENIED this claim..

I'm happy about this ruling. One of my employees is Navajo and he was telling me about the mountain, and how Navajo soldiers take something from the mountain to protect themselves when the go away to war. It is a very sacred place for them. Ski on it, hike on it, just don't desecrate it, he says. I agree.
