Storyboard Text

  • What solution do you believe is best for Snake River?
  • What are the advantages of adopting the proposal you chose?
  • Who benefits from this proposal? How?
  • I think the best solution is removing the dams for the salmon and it would benifit tax payers because it cost around 50 billion to maintain just one dam so they would have to pay less.
  • Who is most harmed? How?
  • The advantages are the salmon can leave the river and continue their life cycle and return to the river so more salmon can be born and the population can grow .
  • How does this proposal impact the environment of the Snake River?
  • The salmon benefit from my proposal because they would have a way to get in and out of the river to reproduce and leave into the sea.
  • Why do you think this is the best proposal for the Snake River?
  • Humans are most harmed because if we take the dams down we will loose a source of hydroelectric power that we use for electricty and we will loose drinking water and a way of irrigation.
  • It restores it partially back to normal getting rid of the dam allows all the small rocks and nutrients to pass below the dam creating a healthy habitat and restoring natural river flow.
  • It helps the salmon and restores the natural habitat. When the Salmon come back to Snake River the bears and wolves have more food continuening the food web
