Take Action on Columbia Spill

Last week we posted a link to a piece by the Columbia Basin Bulletin indicating that decisions on spill v. barging in the transport of outmigrating smolts on the Columbia system had been made already for this season. The truth is however that the administration has yet to make a final decision. So far indications are that the spill strategies which have been used for the last 5 or so years will remain in place, and last week the Independent Science Advisory Board for the Northwest Power and Conservation Council released findings favoring continuation of increased spill.

It is critical that the public make their voices heard and stand up for keeping spill which aids in survival of outmigrant smolts through the hydrosystem. Visit Save our Wild Salmons website to take action.
