Lynda V. Mapes, an environment reporter for the Seattle Times, put out yet another fantastic piece on dam removal in the Pacific Northwest. This time, Mapes turns her laser-focus on the Enloe Dam, in Okanogan County in Washington. This dam doesn’t have a license to produce electricity, and hasn’t generated a kilowatt since 1958.
And it stands in front of 348 miles of pristine chinook and steelhead habitat.
Give Mapes’ article a read here. It’s worth taking it all in, so set aside some time to give her writing the due it deserves.
