Envisioning a new passage
Third Powerplant Overhaul Supervisor Brad Dudley points to components of G-24, a generator being overhauled in in Grand Coulee Dam's massive Third Powerplant. Dudley helped with a tour Monday afternoon of the dam by members of the Columbia Basin Tribes Coalition a day before they began a three-day technical workshop in Spokane to "bring together interested parties to discuss technical, cultural, social, institutional and economic issues associated with restoring adult and juvenile fish passage to historical locations." The technical workshop is in preparation for the Future of Our Salmon Conference being held in Portland, Ore. April 23-24. The coalition includes 15 tribes, including the Colville Tribes.
