Turbidity by suction dredges? Look at this….hypocrisy

So Idaho Conservation League, the USFS, the EPA and many others claim a tiny little plume from a tiny little suction dredge creates so much turbidity that it harms fish.

These pictures were taken yesterday on the same river (South Fork Clearwater in Idaho) they claim are damaged by plumes from dredging.  Let that sink in for a minute.

  1. On April 9, 2019, the Rogue River in SW Oregon was running at something over 200 NTUs of turbidity at the time the precious salmon are busy spawning. It’s amazing how they live through this, spawn, hatch & survive in chocolate milk… and yet they say the 5-6 NTUs from a dredge somehow hurt or even kill the fish!

    They rip out our dams sending years of sludge built up behind the dams down-river creating huge amounts of turbidity for miles downstream and call it a good thing… and yet a few 100 ft. of plume from a dredge is somehow destroying the rivers & streams.

    If turbidity hurt or killed the fish there wouldn’t be any fish!
