Dine Power Authority and Sithe Global want to build another mammoth power plant in the Burnham area. DPA approached Burnham Chapter more than ten times during the past year and they still refused to approve the Desert Rock Power Plant proposal. Their neighboring chapters have also refused to support the proposed power plant and the expanded Navajo Mine.
Even though the energy threatened communities have individually and collectively refused to give their approval to the unwanted plant and expanded mine, DPA continues its high-pressure tactics at the local grassroots level. They are threatening grazing permit holders with permit revocation and livestock confiscation if they do not put their thumbprints on legally dubious grazing rights relinquishment forms and other right-of-way documents.
