LOWER SNAKE RIVER DAMS: The US Army Corps of Engineers has
extended the comment period by one month on its draft study
of whether to breach four lower Snake River dams to aid
salmon and steelhead restoration efforts. As reports the AP
(4/3), the Corps agreed to extend the deadline until
April 30th, based on requests from several agencies and
other groups, including the Oregon Department of Fish and
Wildlife. The Corps will base its recommendation on the
engineering requirements, biological-environmental
effects, economic effects and social and cultural effects
of dam removal.
