Taneum Creek Dam Removal Video

Last year a coalition of local stakeholders including the Yakima Tribe, Bonneville Power Administration and the Kittitas Conservation Trust worked together to replace a diversion dam which had previous blocked most anadromous fish from 30 miles of high quality habitat in upper Taneum Creek. Currently, tributaries provide the majority of spawning and rearing habitat for anadromous fish in the Yakima Basin and the replacement of the 120 year old diversion dam should pay immediate dividends for wild fish. Check out a video documenting the project here:
