Regarding your July 18 editorial titled “Fish Kill,” here is the solution. The technology is so simple. In service all over the United States are helicopters that fight forest fires. They use large pouches suspended below the aircraft. They fly over a body of water, lower the helicopter pouch into the water source, close the pouch and fly to the fire. There they find the hot spot and release the water.
Now apply this same method to a weir full of salmon, lower the pouch, fill it with water and salmon. Fly over the dam, lower the pouch and release the salmon into the lake created by the dam. The salmon will be free the first time in generations to replenish God’s land and purposes.
Reverse the process to allow for natural migration back downstream.
