PacifiCorp manager to outline Condit Dam removal plans

Presentation planned for Jan. 11

Todd Olson, PacifiCorp's Condit Dam project manager, will be in White Salmon on Thursday, Jan. 11, to make a presentation on PacifiCorp's plans for removing Condit Dam,.

PacifiCorp, owner of the dam, has chosen removal of the dam -- which is scheduled to begin in October 2008 -- as the cost-effective alternative to installing the fish passage required by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission in compliance with the National Marine Fisheries Service.

The presentation will begin at 6 p.m. at the White Salmon Community Library, and will include descriptions of the processes by which the dam will be removed and the surrounding landscape restored. There will also be a presentation of a 22 minute movie entitled Taking a Second Look: Communities and Dam Removal.
