Feds to Maintain Snake River Spill


The federal government has back off on a controversial plan to dramatically change strategies for the down river passage of smolts through the Snake and Columbia Rivers and implement a "maximum transport" plan. Instead operations will remain more or less the same as they were the last few years, spreading outmigrating smolts between in river passage and barging. Independent scientists and environmental advocates had objected to the proposed plan to increase transport, citing concerns over potentially harmful effects of a barging strategy, including a higher incidence of straying in barged fish.
