Documentary About the Damming of the Columbia Airing on PBS Tonight

Tonight at 8pm, PBS is airing a documentary based on the book A River Lost: The Life and Death of the Columbia River by Washington native Blaine Harden. The documentary chronicles the history of the Columbia River from the construction of the Grand Coulee Dam to the present day legal battles surrounding the future of the Columbia. In recent years the consensus of biologists in the region has grown to view the removal of the four Lower Snake River Dams as the greatest impediment to the recovery of wild salmon in the Columbia.
