Action Alert: Comments Needed on Elk Creek Dam Notching
10/31/2007 - by Thomas O'Keefe
We need your help today to support notching of the partially completed Elk Creek Dam in the Rogue River drainage. The proposed action will notch the dam to provide upstream passage for fish and downstream passage for boaters. Even brief comments will be a huge help. The deadline for comments is November 5th.
AW Objects to New Idaho Dam
04/18/2007 - by Kevin Colburn
On April 15th, AW volunteer Charlie Vincent filed comments to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission formally objecting to a proposed dam on southern Idaho's Bear River. The Onieda Narrows would be flooded if the new dam were constructed, devastating the ecological and recreational values of this last flowing reach of the Bear River in Idaho. AW is joined by a host of other agencies and groups, including Idaho Rivers United, in fighting this dam.
New Dam Proposed for Bear River (ID)
03/07/2007 - by Thomas O'Keefe
A new hydropower project is proposed for the Oneida Narrows on the Bear River, ID. This project would inundate a great class I/II beginner reach and directly conflict with mitigation measures that are part of our Settlement Agreement for existing hydropower projects on the river. The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission has scheduled a series of Scoping Meetings to hear from the public on this project and we encourage our members to attend. A site visit and meetings will take place on March 13, 14, and 15th, 2007.
