Snake river dams

Ice Harbor dam near Burbank, Washington, is one of four dams on the lower Snake River facing removal.

KENNEWICK, Wash. — Rep. Dan Newhouse wants Oregon’s Gov. Kate Brown to take a first-hand look at the world-class fish passage technology on Ice Harbor Dam near the Tri-Cities after she lent her support to breaching the four lower Snake River dams.

Brown, a Democrat, sent a letter to Washington’s Democratic Gov. Jay Inslee this month saying that the best long-term option to improve endangered salmon runs is to breach the dams in Washington state.
