again here is my theory not to be taked for anything other than BS
My theory is that the columbia as it is now is in a perpetual state of being unnaturally high. therefore if the dams we gone the river would have more room to flood and the river would like any other be high in late spring and low in fall through winter.
Barge traffic would be limited as it was before the dams and international shipping into portland would cease which is ok with me because having a deep sea port 100 miles inland doesn't make sence to me,,
aggriculture would have to inceasr efficiency of their watering systems, but sad to say aggriculutre in the northwest is on the way out, they cannot compete with overseas stuff.
something we need to come to grips with is that it's not going to be imediatly good for the economy
