Document - Snake River Dams Benefit Replacement Report Comments


American Whitewater provides these comments in response to the Draft Lower Snake River Dams Benefit Replacement Report (Draft Report) prepared by Kramer Consulting and Ross Strategic (Consultant Team) to support the Inslee-Murray process to determine whether there are reasonable means for replacing the services and benefits provided by the Lower Snake River Dams, sufficient to support dam breaching. American Whitewater believes the environmental and social justice costs of the Lower Snake River Dams exceeds the benefits they provide, and those services currently provided by the dams can be replaced as detailed in the Draft Report. In addition to the significant benefits to salmon and steelhead, removing the four lower Snake River dams will open opportunities for a 140-mile, multi-day river trip and enhance on-river recreation opportunities in key tributaries.
