The Bonneville Power Administration, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and U.S. Bureau of Reclamation announced hearings and opened a public comment period seeking public input to develop a new plan to save endangered wild salmon and steelhead in the Columbia and Snake Rivers in the Pacific Northwest, including discussions on the future of dams on the lower Snake River. For nearly two decades, conservation and fishing groups have gone to court challenging federal agency plans that have failed to protect threatened and endangered Snake River salmon. During this time, five federal plans have been declared illegal by three federal judges.
Todd True, managing attorney of Earthjustice’s Northwest regional office in Seattle, joins Chris to talk about salmon conservation efforts in the Northwest, what people can expect to learn about at Monday’s meeting and how you can submit your comments on these issues.
The public hearing is Monday Oct. 24 from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Wenatchee Community Center, 504 S. Chelan Ave.
