Don’t Kill the Skykomish for Minimal Amount of Power
The Skykomish is one of Washington’s most popular rivers for fishing, paddling, and scenic beauty. However, a proposed hydropower dam would destroy the wild character of the river’s South Fork, and reduce two spectacular waterfalls to a trickle.
County officials should abandon this damaging project and focus on better energy alternatives to ensure those needs are balanced with the need for healthy rivers and a strong outdoor recreation economy.
Take Action: Don't Let Them Dam the Skykomish
Damming the Skykomish River will damage its wild beauty and hurt the local economy that relies upon it. Urge the county commissioners to abandon this new dam and instead focus on improving existing energy resources.
