More Spill at Washington Dams Proposed to Help Starving Orcas

State regulators want to increase the amount of water that’s spilled over eight dams in order to help juvenile salmon survive as they migrate in the Columbia and Snake rivers. Increasing salmon populations could also help the region’s shrinking orca population. There’s a meeting on the proposal today in Vancouver, as Eric Tegethoff reports.
