Document - Chehalis River Dam Scoping Comments
AbstractAmerican Whitewater provides these comments to inform the Scope of the Chehalis River Basin Flood Damage Reduction Project Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). American Whitewater is strongly opposed to construction of a new dam on the Chehalis River (characterized in the public notice as a “Flood Retention Expandable facility”). We encourage the Governor's Chehalis Basin Workgroup to terminate planning for a new dam on the Chehalis River. Instead we encourage the State to invest resources in fully developing the 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.
