Fear for the White River

Yesterday's announcement about 18 new private hydro dams on (mostly) wilderness rivers doesn't scare the editor of Ottertooth.

On the other hand, the proposals to put a couple of dams on the White River, which aren’t mentionned in the release, are quite controversial.

Unfortunately, Canoeroots, the paper magazine that published a scary article about the dam plans for the White (which flows into Lake Superior) gave up on their web site about a year ago by the look of it.

There is an Ottertooth forum thread about this.

And another dam project, on the Umbata river, has one of its proponents posting on CCR.
