Crack Down on Deadbeat Dams

This petition had 73,254 supporters

Join us in calling on President Obama to crack down on deadbeat dams, beginning with four especially harmful, federally operated dams on the lower Snake River in Southeastern Washington: Ice Harbor Dam, Lower Monumental Dam, Little Goose Dam and Lower Granite Dam.

The Snake River once produced half the salmon in the Columbia Basin – now, every Snake River salmon stock is on the Endangered Species list or extinct.

We have an historic opportunity to restore wild salmon and steelhead to self-sustaining numbers in more than 6,000 miles of river habitat.

Thank you for adding your voice!   And please, share this with your social network…

This petition was created in conjunction with the documentary film DamNation, and supporting partners Patagonia and Save Our Wild Salmon. Please visit to learn more.
