Take a Stand for the San Pedro River!

In 2015, hundreds of WRAN members took action by asking that the Army Corps of Engineers formally re-evaluate the Section 404 clean water permit for Villages at Vigneto - a 12,300 acre community of 28,000 homes, five golf courses, and commercial venues near the San Pedro River.  Thanks to these advocates and others, the permit was suspended in June 2016 for further review. 

The Corps is now seeking comments to decide whether or not to hold public hearings as part of their review process. 

The San Pedro River is a migratory path for over 250 avian species and provides breeding habitat for 100 others.  Throughout the year, over 40% of North America’s avian species make use of this nationally recognized ecological resource.
