Corps will disclose pollutants released by dams in historic deal

Conservation groups and salmon advocates have challenged the Obama administration's latest plan for making Columbia Basin dams, including The Dalles Dam, pictured above, safe for salmon. The challenge was filed June 17 in U.S. District Court in Portland against the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Fisheries Service, which oversees salmon protection, and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and U.S. Bureau of Reclamation, which operate the dams.
