More Good News

Good news on the left coast. PacifiCorp has been ordered to modify its dams on the Klamath River, according to The Washington Post. Since modifying the dams would cost a couple of hundred million more than simply removing them and since PacifiCorp's owner, Warren Buffett, doesn't seem interested in floating the bill, they may come down.

Either way, this is huge for salmon and steelhead on that system. According to the Klamath Restoration Council, salmon could move twice as far up the river if the dams were modified or removed.

That has got to be good for the fishies.
