Officials from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers met at the Sandpoint Center Wednesday evening to give a presentation on the draft integrated Post-Authorization Decision Document and Environmental Assessment for the Albeni Falls Dam fish passage project.
A few dozen attendees were treated to a presentation detailing the steps of the project, which is currently in the feasibility study phase. Albeni Falls is one of the last dams in the region in this early phase of planning for a fish passage.
