In an unexpected move, a Pierce County Land Use Committee member changed their vote on the county’s 6-month CAFO moratorium, preventing the issue from moving to the county board for a vote. The Kiap-TU-Wish chapter and other local Pierce County groups had been advocating for the moratorium in the hopes it would give the county a chance to review its current CAFO permitting procedure and reevaluate the impact of these facilities on drinking water and the Rush River and Plum Creek watersheds.
The Kiap-TU-Wish board remains hopeful however. They’ve asked us to pass along a fundraising link for GROWW, the grassroots organization in Pierce County that has taken point on advocacy around this issue. The fundraising drive has a goal of $20,000 by August 22, 2023. If you care to make a donation, you can do so via this link: https://www.gro-wwed.org/donate/#ppp
