Proposed RP Casino Will Sink Water Table

Rohnert Park is inviting big trouble with its proposed Native American-owned gambling resort. The operation intends to sink deep wells (more than one!) into a water table that is already in severe overdraft.

Worse, it appears that the city is openly violating the spirit of its legal settlement agreement with the citizens of Penngrove to reduce groundwater reliance.

Why the proposed casino location near RP is dangerous

Rohnert Park, the Federated Indians of Graton Rancheria and Station Casinos plan a giant hotel/casino complex right in the middle of an area that has already been demonstrated in court to be in substantial groundwater overdraft.

Read why.
