Event Type

From Rep. Jami Cate’s (R-HD 11) newsletter: 

We continue hearing concerns about the negative impacts of the drawdowns of Green Peter Reservoir–from dead fish to our water quality, and want to share an opportunity to make your concerns heard by the Army Corps of Engineers who have been responsible for implementing this management strategy after being mandated as a result of a federal lawsuit.

This listening session is not specific to our dams, but part of a larger report to Congress regarding the public’s opinions of the future of hydropower in the Valley, as many dams throughout the Valley have been drawn down for that purpose.

To be clear, ours was drawn down for a different purpose–part of a federal injunction to try and save endangered fish, but it is still closely related in actual impacts and Rep. Cate encourages you to participate as it is a great chance to be heard by the Corps.
