Project Coordinator - Stop Gross Dam Expansion Campaign
Details: You will be contracted hourly. The rate will range between $15-$20/hour depending on prior experience.
Just 11 miles from downtown Boulder, Denver Water proposes to enlarge the existing Gross Dam, resulting in the biggest and most environmentally damaging construction project in Boulder County’s history. If you live in or around Boulder County, or if you just enjoy coming into Boulder on the weekends to hike, kayak, or even just visit with friends—you'll feel the negative impacts of this project. Denver Water estimates this construction project will take at least 7 years.
