Love to know where you got your information–Contaminated water sounds like industrial, even though there are no industries around.
Did the hydroelectricity end before the dam removal or BECAUSE OF the dam removal?
Remember, life is not about paying less for electricity: We all want to pay as much as we can.
The most important thing is saving a tiny minnow. If you want to go the extra mile, print the private ecological group’s name, principals in it and contact information that removed the dam. Then find how they got the funding to do this dam removal, and how much money was left over.
Note: It i$ not about $aving minnow$
