Take Action Public Comment is NOW CLOSED for Chehalis River Dam proposal. Thank you for your comments. The Washington Department of Ecology released the Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement that evaluates the impacts the proposed dam will have on the environment. Public comment will be open until May 27th. You can help these fish by submitting your comments about the dam today. The Chehalis is the last watershed of its size in the Northwest where salmon and steelhead are not listed under the Endangered Species Act. This is no place for a dam. We encourage the state to relocate at-risk properties to safer ground, flood proof critical infrastructure and restore river and floodplain function in order to reduce flood risk and restore salmon habitat.
