Borax Lake Chubb

OPB | Feb. 1, 1995 7:30 p.m.

The remarkable Borax Lake chub is a fish that lives exclusively in Borax Lake, in southeastern Oregon. The fish survive in alkaline water at up to 105 degrees. Geothermal developers want to use the natural heat to generate power, but that may be a problem for the endangered chub.
