Take Action & Speak Up, It’s Easy!
Public demand for action is needed before change will come.
Contact your elected officials and ask them to support breaching the Lower Snake River dams. Lots of easy ways to connect!
If your own power rates and wild salmon are important to you, contact the Public Utility District (PUD) in your area. Breaching the dams could actually help REDUCE the cost of power. And, ask your representatives to vote against H.R. 3144. Learn more and take action.
Tweet your support for dam breaching! It’s quick and easy. Our pre-packaged tweet sheets are quick!

Follow the on-going CRSO / NEPA Process
In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Bureau of Reclamation, and Bonneville Power Administration, are preparing an environmental impact statement (EIS) on the Columbia River System operations and configurations for 14 federal projects in the interior Columbia Basin. This includes the four lower Snake River dams. The public comment period ended February 7th, 2017. Comments solicited to help the agencies identify issues and concerns that could be analyzed in the EIS are available at the very bottom of this CRSO page. CRSO’s planning process alone has a target completion date in 2021. Key message to these agencies: breach the LSR dams beginning 2017 because Snake River salmon and steelhead will not survive a 5 year or longer CRSO / NEPA process. Here’s more information about the process and how it relates to Snake River salmon and steelhead.
