  • Salmon advocates ask for more water over dams

    By Jef Barnard
    Grants Pass, Oregon (AP)


    Salmon advocates and the state of Oregon are asking a federal judge to order more water spilled over Columbia and Snake River dams to help young salmon migrate downriver to the ocean.

    The motion for an injunction was filed Nov. 26 in U.S. District Court in Portland.

    It is part of the litigation over how to balance hydroelectric needs against threatened and endangered salmon in the Columbia Basin. Water spilled over the dams doesn’t go through turbines to generate power, costing the Bonneville Power Administration millions of dollars.
