No Pipe Dream has made great strides to stop the proposed Thornton pipeline down Douglas Road and CR56. However, Thornton has not abandoned these routes, despite the Commissioner's voting against them. Instead, Thornton has filed a lawsuit with Larimer County and hopes to win the right to use one of the two routes, with the good possibility of the NISP pipeline following suit. Thornton protests the river route, we, along with Save the Poudre , continue to promote that route.
No Pipe Dream is gaining a seat at the table by intervening in the lawsuit, which means:
In law, intervention is a procedure to allow a nonparty, called intervenor to join ongoing litigation, either as a matter of right or at the discretion of the court, without the permission of the original litigants. The basic rationale for intervention is that a judgment in a particular case may affect the rights of nonparties, who ideally should have the right to be heard.
By keeping our presence known and our lawyer at the table, the county is less likely to settle with Thornton on a northern route and more likely to push for the river route.
To continue having an influence, we need your support.
We know many of you have generously supported No Pipe Dream and in doing so have played a vital role in the current outcome. We cannot thank you enough. Our lawyer, John Barth, will enact our formal intervention at an estimated $20,000. To move forward, we need pledges of support now.
If you support our desire to keep a seat at the table and influence the outcome, please send a check or visit our Gofundme. Thank you. We did it before, we can do it again!
