Despite widespread opposition, a Washington State utility company “SnoPUD” has proposed building a new dam and power plant on the protected Skykomish River. This environmental catastrophe would dewater over a mile of river, including two pristine waterfalls, Canyon Falls and Sunset Falls.
SnoPUD’s proposed dam is a $150 million boondoggle that would produce minimal energy – less than 1% of their energy portfolio – while posing serious risks to our environment, endangered species, recreation opportunities, and quality of life.
At present, taxpayers are spending $324.7 MILLION to remove two Washington State dams on the Elwha River.
Anyone want to weigh in on this shit?
