Fish Ladder, Bonneville Dam, Oregon


Fish Ladder, Bonneville Dam, Oregon

This is a view of the fish ladder at Bonneville dam. The purpose is to provide fish through passage upstream. The Pacific Northwest and Columbia River Basin population are heavily dependent on electricity generated by hydroelectric power. This dependency will continued to be tested as drought hits the region.
