“This is an essential step in restoring the ecosystem’s resources and rebuilding the natural balance that supported the Yakama people and a significant tribal fishery for millennia,” said Virgil Lewis, tribal council member, in a statement.

A hole blasted in base of the dam is planned for October, releasing Northwestern Lake into the White Salmon River. Once the reservoir is drained, the rest of the dam will be demolished, with restoration work extending through 2012.
