Agency calls for
Willamette dam fish passage-
-Kboo's Nathan Jimenez has the story:

A federal agency
says three dams in the Willamette Valley should have fish passage structures if
the stream's Chinook salmon and Steelhead are to avoid extinction.

The National
Marine Fisheries Service released an assessment

Friday of the operation of the 13
dams in the Willamette River

basin.

The Chinook and Steelhead are protected by the Endangered Species Act.

The agency says
the dams and other parts of the basin's flood control project keep them out of
their historic spawning grounds upstream and damage their habitat downstream.
