Foster Fell is starting to collect signatures to put a measure on the ballot that would make sure the river remains healthy and may require the city to build fish passage before any projects go forward.

 

"They would prohibit any tax money -- any project that would detract from the river regarding fish passage.  They need to maintain the health of the river.  There are standards that are accepted to maintain river health such as river temperature, dissolve oxygen and sediment and algae in the river."

 

Fell is creating a website, "Free the River.org" to collect signatures.  Supporters must gather 7-thousand signatures by August 7th, to be put on the November ballot.
