Heads up on proposed Hydro Improvement Act

Heads up on Hydro legislation.

H.R. 1013 the Hydroelectric Improvement Act will if passed make it more difficult to provide fish passage and make it more difficult to remove Hydro Dams in the future. American Rivers has some detailed info on it and a electronic letter you can sign on and send to appropriate legislators.

It appears that this bill as currently written would allow dam owners to argue and force regulators to consider the argument that fish passage is to expensive in relation to the profit of a given hydro facility. This would be a significant change from the current process, which recognizes that providing fish passage is a fundamental responsibility of dam ownership.

There is a lot at stake here, so if you have a spare moment go to http://www.americanrivers.org/takeaction/ and let your legislators know how important this is. We need to keep the OUR in our rivers.
