This ruling was due to a law suit, if the Corps continues to ignore the court orders, then high level directors will be jailed.Even with that scathing order, do you think the ACoE will act "immediately"? What would be the consequences for the ACoE, if they decide to ignore the ruling?
Key Wording is OBSFUCATION. Lets us all think of its origins.Foot dragging has been the number one issue thus far.
This is from another article.
"On Thursday, U.S. District Judge Marco Hernandez outlined the actions that the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) must immediately take to protect threatened Upper Willamette River wild spring Chinook salmon and winter steelhead from extinction.
In a strongly worded draft order, Judge Hernandez made clear he “has no patience for further delay or obfuscation in this matter and expects nothing short of timely implementation of the injunctive measures and the experts’ proposal outlining the parameters for those measures.”
You are making to much sense , they do not like that at O.D.F.W.Why do they not mention Hills Creek or Dorena in any of the "plans"? Seems to me there is a lot of spawning ground above both of those dames. All the dams need a good ladder system they should not have to rely on ODFW trucking them up.
Be careful what you ask for.Just remember, Commission members are appointed by the Governor. The Commission appoints ODFW's director.
