Why hasn’t the Corps of Engineers acted to breach the dams?

Posted /Frequently Asked

Lack of regional political leadership to even ask the Corps to breach.  And, a misguided belief by the public and agencies that further studies, legislation, and a new Environmental Impact Statement will solve the problem when in fact all it does is prolong effective action.  25 years has been spent trying every other method to recover salmon.  Strong  pressure on the Corps, Bonneville Power Authority, Governor Inslee, and the Northwest Congressional delegation to breach the dams is urgently needed now before it is too late.
