Public Invited To Clarkston-Pasco-Vancouver Workshops On Question Of Snake River Dams

posted in: News | 0

It’s been a long-argued question: Should the four dams on the lower Snake River stay or go?

Washington Gov. Jay Inslee wanted to know how to speed up the decades-long debate about dams on the lower Snake River. Upcoming public workshops will examine a draft report that gauges how people in Washington want to deal with the fate of the dams.

The workshops will all start at 6:30 p.m., with doors opening at 6 p.m.:

  • Clarkston, Washington, Tuesday, Jan. 7, at the Quality Inn & Suites and Quay Convention Center, 700 Port Drive;
  • Vancouver, Washington, Thursday, Jan. 9, at the Washington State University Vancouver – Dengerink Administration Building, 14204 NE Salmon Creek Ave.;
  • Pasco, Washington, Monday, Jan. 13, at the Red Lion Hotel & Conference Center, 2525 North 20th Ave.

At the workshops, officials will present the report’s findings, followed by a panel discussion. People can submit written and online comments on the draft report through Jan. 24.
