DOE, county to discuss Condit Dam

Topic of meeting will be the proposed Condit Dam removal project.

Representatives from the Washington Department of Ecology will be in Goldendale on Jan. 9 to meet with the Klickitat County Board of Commissioners.

The topic of discussion will be DOE's regulatory involvement in the proposed Condit Dam removal project.

"It's an opportunity for the County Commissioners to ask DOE questions," said Joye Redfield-Wilder, DOE's public information manager in Yakima. "There are some things swirling around, and that's what we're there to explain."

Commissioner Don Struck said he welcomed the chance to obtain more information on the Condit Dam project from DOE officials.

"It's a public meeting to discuss Condit Dam," Struck said. "It's a hot issue, and we feel the need to get the true story from DOE's perspective. There is a lot of information and misinformation out there."

Struck added that representatives from the Skamania County Board of Commissioners were also being invited to attend the session.

"It's just an open discussion. I'm sure a lot of folks from the west end of the county will be there to ask questions too," Struck noted.

The meeting will be part of the regular agenda for the Klickitat County Commissioners, and is scheduled to take place from 2:30-3:30 p.m. The venue will be the County Courthouse, at 205 S. Columbus in Goldendale.
