Dams/Waterways Experiments


The US Army Corps of Engineers and scientists work with models of our Pacific northwest dams in order to find out how best to improve migration of our salmon runs and protect juveniles from predators as they are released into the river. OFG travels to Vicksburg, MS where the models have been set up and captures the experiments at work.

First Broadcast: 1995
Producer: Jeff Douglas
