A local panel discussion will focus on the possibility of breaching lower four Snake River Dams on Monday, March 23rd from 12:00 p.m. - 2:00p.m in the Whitewater Room of the Common at the University of Idaho.

The event is free and open to the public.

 

“The Army Corps of Engineers greatly underestimated the costs to the American taxpayer for maintaining the lower four Snake River Dams in their 2002 study,” said Brett Haverstick, Education Director for Friends of the Clearwater. “This panel discussion is going to dispel the myth that maintaining the status quo is more affordable and practical than breaching.”
