Tribes fighting for salmon on Skagit River say $30M spent by Seattle on dam relicensing is 'mind-boggling'

DARRINGTON, Wash. — In its quest to relicense its hydroelectric dams on the Skagit River, Seattle City Light has spent approximately $30 million, records show. The vast majority has gone toward paying scientific specialists, but other expenses include paying consultants to facilitate virtual meetings, craft strategic communications and provide legal advice. Seven law firms, as well as inside counsel, have been involved in the dam relicensing and associated lawsuits filed in response to the process.

I appreciate the partnership with the Snohomish County Council and our Broadband Action Team, who spearheaded our efforts to secure this grant.
