Snake River Dams

by Jack Markley
Peninsula Daily News, May 23, 2021

After reading Diane Urbani de la Paz story on May 23, I have a few questions about Heidi Eisenhour's support for breaching the dams on the lower Snake River.

What is the big success of removing the dams on the Elwha River if it remains closed to sport fishing?

Why do columnist Pat Neal's questions go unanswered?

What is the benefit of the top-secret meetings to divide the predicted runs of paper salmon between competing groups of fishermen who can only agree on banning the other groups' gear?

Who replaces the money lost by the Port Angeles water department?
