EUGENE, Ore -- A federal court has upheld an order to let more water spill over Columbia and Snake River dams. It's to help protect salmon and steelhead. The increase in water starts Tuesday, April 3rd.
Conservationists say the extra water will help young salmon swim out to sea, but the National Marine Fisheries Service opposes the move. This is the fourth time since 2005 the court has ordered the spill to happen.
