[publicnewsservice.org] SEATTLE – A report on the future of the Snake River in southeast Washington comes out today.
The Lower Snake River Dams Stakeholder draft report relies on perspectives from more than 100 stakeholders and more than 3,500 online responders. While there are no recommendations, it could be an influential document on the future of the dams. It’s designed to increase understanding on both sides of the issue. Amy Grondin, a commercial fisher in Port Townsend, was interviewed for the report and says the salmon industry continues to be hurt because of the dams’ effect on fish migration.
