TAKE ACTION: Iconic Fish Are Under Threat From Bad Hydropower

Skykomish River

A proposed hydropower project on Washington’s Skykomish River could adversely impact already imperiled runs of Puget Sound salmon and steelhead.

According to some fisheries experts familiar with the basin, the project will impair downstream fish passage as well as degrade and reduce fish habitat necessary for spawning salmon and other native fishes in the South Fork Skykomish River system, by reducing median monthly flows 63 – 90%.

Please speak up and tell the Governor of Washington and the Washington Department of Ecology that some places are too special to ruin with development and diversions.
