America's Most Endangered River Four dams on Snake River endanger salmon WASHINGTON, D.C. Citing the extensive scientific evidence underscoring the need to remove the four lower Snake River dams to save endangered salmon, Congressman Tom Udall (D-NM) sent a letter to the Clinton Administration saying dam removal must be "the first step to effectively restoring the salmon in the lower Snake River." Dam removal "is an action that makes sense for the ecosystem, the economy and the nations and tribes with whom we have treaty obligations," Congressman Udall added. "Congressman Udall has shown that when people take the time to look at the scientific data, economic facts and the treaty and legal obligations - removing the dams makes the most sense," said Justin Hayes of American Rivers. Congressman Udall urged President Clinton to take action soon; stressing that delaying a decision on salmon recovery "will allow the salmon to move closer to extinction."
