Dam Project Part of Water Plan for Eastern Washington

If the $4.2 billion proposal to provide more water for fish and farmers in the Yakima Valley in eastern Washington pans out, it will be the biggest thing to hit the region since the Grand Coulee Dame in 1942, according to the Seattle Times.

Many groups are now working together to convince Congress and the state Legislature to help fund the projects. However, some environmental groups oppose the new plan saying it would inundate old-growth forest while some politicians oppose the plan dues to the cost.
