dismantle that dam !! its best long term solution for the hole river eco-system
where are the counts,, YOU HAVE NOT POSTED FOR 3 DAYS;; APRIL 19 2017
Take the dam down, we want more fish habitat.
Breach the dam! Our Southern resident orcas of the Salish Sea are starving and it is not even economically sustainable.
OK, so tear down the Dam ? What about all the people that rely on the Dam for electricity, drinking water and farm irrigation ? The ignorance of EnvironMENTALIST's is disturbing.
Some of you posters below should be more concerned about the northern pike working their way down from Lake Roosevelt.
yeah, right! it's safer, better than 10, 20, 30 years ago… what about 60+ years ago? not? then how about taking out the dams! Yes, dismantle them and take out all the man-made hazards!
The Columbia river is over Damned !! We need power but we don't need as many dams as we have and we need it to flow like a river not a lake. The only reason the dams are making any of these improvements is because their hand is being forced !! The Pacific Northwest has lost some of the greatest fish runs in the world in the name of hydropower. Grand Coulee no fish Passage !!
Came here for my ENST 367 class in UM.Great video.
Incremental fixes have done little to make dams fish friendly as you claim. You are to be commended for making improvements, but the statistics on returning adult salmon and steelhead show them slipping toward extinction. As things are now most fish in the basin are of hatchery origin. The Columbia River once produced the millions of salmon, naturally. Stop tinkering around the edges and JUST FIX IT!
Shame on the utility power companies. They have destroyed nearly all the rivers in the northwest for the sake of power and wealth, There are other sources of power, thermal and solar power. Get a clue. The age of the dam is over.
