We never thought the BOR would build the alternative of fish passage without recreational features. We believe it is not only an attractive nuisance that may cause injuries and possibly drownings, but it will become unstable at high flows and will eventually fail, potentially causing damage to the fish passage it is designed to support. Please see the links below to the McLaughlin and Walbridge reports for details regarding safety.
