Document - Chehalis River Congressional delegation letter


As organizations strongly opposed to construction of a new dam on the Chehalis River we write to express our concerns with the Chehalis River Basin Flood Damage Reduction Project. As an alternative, we encourage Washington State to partner with federal resource agencies to fully develop a Restorative Flood Protection alternative, begin project-level environmental analysis and investment in structural flood protection that does not include construction of a dam, and expand the scope and investment in Local-Scale Flood Reduction and Aquatic Species Habitat Actions.
