Judge finds fault with federal salmon plan

Are we one step closer to removal of the Snake River Dams?

Judge finds fault with federal salmon plan. Conservation groups optimistic about order. By Jon Duval. Idaho Mountain Express.

These dams are on the lower Snake River. That’s in the state of Washington, but they greatly harm salmon and steelhead migration to and from Idaho to the ocean. For years, steelheaders and other conservationists have wanted these nagivation dams breeched and the government has opposed it. Judge Redden (see article) has been monitoring  government efforts to comply with the Endangered Species Act on the matter, and he is not pleased.

Entire books have been writing about the issue.

    Cheap, subsidized power, or the restoration of salmon runs? Obama has favored the former, much to his detriment. I am hoping this judge FINALLY does what he has been hinting he wants to do for years now..breach the dams.

    See Jim we can agree on something.. These dams need to go now! I was so dissappointed with the tribes and states for the big payoffs they took last year instead of doing the right thing.

    What else is new guys government most of the times sides with industry, but not so much in the Clinton era.
