The Department of Justice and the State of Arizona agreed on Dec 21, 2022 that the trash wall must be removed. The legal stipulation sets out a completion date of Jan 4, 2023 to remove and remediate the damage in the Yuma sector. As far as the Coronado National Forest sector, the stipulation sets out a one-week deadline for a plan to be agreed to for removal and remediation. This plan takes the onus off the incoming governor Katie Hobbs and places it back where it belongs - on Ducey and the forces of greed and fear-mongering. We need to ensure that the work is done in a way that respects the land! The damage to the watersheds will not be a simple thing to repair. Monitoring will be key - and You can help! We will be connecting with other organizations who will be taking a role in this monitoring as the plans unfold. Stay tuned for more information as we receive it.
