    I have lived in Oregon and Washington for most of my 81 years and have read a lot of the wonderful safeguards the Corp of engineers has established from the beginning in building the dams to safeguard the fish as well as the population that often got flooded out before we had dams. I believe this country owes the population the respect of leaving the dams in place since promises were made when we gave approval for them to be built. We were promised low cost electricity, safeguards from flooding,irrigation for crops and better quality of life. We are now used to these things and now a few naysayers want to take them away. Fish are not the most important contributions of the rivers, the human population should rank higher than fish and why would anyone want to ruin human quality and deny promises made at the-time we approved them being built. I have seen to many broken promises in my lifetime and can understand why there is so little approval of the governing body. Do what is right not what is most profitable for a change.
