Episode 122 – The Winchester Dam pt. 2

This week I’m visited by Kirk Blaine & Jim McCarthy again as we discuss the continuing effort to get the Winchester Dam removed from the Umpqua River. We discuss the unfinished repairs and it’s added danger to the dam, the State’s seriousness and proposed action, the many violations the dam’s owners face, the lack of Federal action despite the infractions at that level, the pitiful salmon returns on this run due to the dam, the speed at which removal can return the river to it’s natural state, and what the public can do help.
