APRIL 6 - Jim Waddell will present "It Cost More To Kill Snake River Salmon Than to Save Them" at the League of Women Voters of Moscow meeting noon-1 p.m. Wednesday (April 6) in the Great Room of the 1912 Center, 412 E. Third St., Moscow.
He will discuss how much the four lower Snake River dams are costing tax- and ratepayers, and what they get for their money in terms of restoring salmon runs and effects on the regional economy. He will also address the benefits that can be derived from a free-flowing lower Snake River and how it is possible to achieve many of these benefits, even within the next five years, while saving and/or redirecting funds to other more beneficial federal projects or dams.
Waddell is a professional civil engineer who retired after a 35-year career with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Now, with the help of other volunteers and economic consultants, he is engaged in a re-evaluation of the cost, economics, biology, engineering and policies concerning the lower Snake River dams.
The Public is invited to attend.
