Great Post Leland!

I also read not too long ago alot of this information in greater detail in David James Duncan's book, "My Story as told by Water." Those 4 snake dams generate something like 4 or 6% of the regions power at an Astronomical price. A 6 billion dollar bandaide, vs. moving some dirt, paying a few hundred bucks to each farmer who will loose a few pennies per bushel seems to make PERFECT sense to me.....as it should the rest of Tax Paying America. However, Its been proven time and again that Common Sense has NO PLACE in our current environmental policies or future policies.

As for someone's mention thats its time to fess up to a failed scheme and start fixing it..........That'll be the day! Its more profitable to keep leaching the pockets of blue collar America.
