ASK PRESIDENT OBAMA TO CRACK DOWN ON DEADBEAT DAMS

Sign the Petition

 

Communities in nearly every state are choosing to remove high-cost, low-value dams to restore rivers, recover fish stocks, revitalize waterfronts, improve quality of life, and render watersheds more resilient to climate change. Ask President Obama to crack down on deadbeat dams, beginning with four especially harmful, federally operated dams on the Snake River, blocking access to the healthiest salmon habitat in the lower 48 states.

This action is made possible through a partnership with Save Our Wild Salmon (wildsalmon.org) who, for more than 15 years, have been working tirelessly to remove the four lower Snake River dams. It’s time they came down.

WASHINGTON STATE RESIDENTS

Ask Senators Cantwell and Murray to help remove four deadbeat dams on the lower Snake River.

More than 70,000 people from all over the world signed the petition asking President Obama to remove the dams.

But the feds want to see support from the leadership of Washington state.

A phone call from you to Senators Cantwell (206-220-6400) and Murray (206-553-5545) is the most powerful way to get that support.
