The Snake and salmon: People are feeling the pain of a river lost

People who never would have considered removal of the four lower Snake River dams (between Pasco, Wash., and Lewiston) are now moving from “never” to “it might not be so bad” to “this could be a really good thing.” And the reason is simple: People are feeling the pain of a river lost; they are recognizing what a restored river ecosystem could do for the economy and their quality of life; and they have seen the proof in more than a thousand examples of what river restoration can do — be it by dam removal, pollution abatement or whatever method was required to fix the problem.
