HELP with Water for Sand Wash Basin

$19,830 of $15,000 goal

Raised by 310 people in 15 days
Sand Wash Basin Herd Management Area is home to almost 700 wild horses.  Sand Wash Basin is experiencing a drought and our wild horses are running out of water.   Wild Horse Warriors for Sand Wash Basin,  is working with our local BLM to find a solution to the water shortage in Sand Wash Basin.
If each wild horse averages 10 gallons of water a day that is 7000 gallons a day that we need in Sand Wash Basin. We currently have three springs that are producing some of the water that is needed and 2 other water sources that at this point are providing some water. 
We can not start hauling water until we get the approval from the State BLM office.  Our understanding is that Copper Pond will be the gauge to start hauling water.  We will be tracking its usage on a daily basis and will be ready to haul water if and when it becomes necessary and approved.
A thousand gallons of water will cost us approximately 8.00, plus renting a water truck. Unless we get lots of rain this will be everyday until fall or until we get snow. 
For just the water we are looking at 50.00 per day.  For a month that is 1500.00., 4500.00 for the summer. Plus fuel and the truck rental.
We are also working with the BLM to improve the known water sources and developing new water sources. We will be needing more water tanks and equipment for installing the tanks.

Please help our wild horses survive this drought!

Wild Horse Warriors spent the day on the range with the BLM. We had prepared a map of all the known water sources and were able to share this with the BLM.
We will continue to work with our BLM on the current water shortage in Sand Wash Basin, and are confident that in the new future we will begin hauling water to our beautiful Wild Horses.
