Puget Sound Orca/Snake River Salmon Connection

‘Most’ everything in this article is correct, except that the conclusion is wrong.  It was written by the Washington State Chapter of the Sierra Club.  Too much spill kills salmon and the incremental benefit to more spill is minimal at this point. If we want robust, economically thriving river communities, wild salmon for future generations to experience, and a healthy Pacific Northwest ecosystem for all of us, the Snake River needs to be set free from the four Lower Snake River Dams.

More spill won’t make it, so lets not ask for it. We need to be asking for immediate breach starting this year.
