Fisheries Service Ruling May Slow Development Along Washington Rivers

A National Marine Fisheries Service ruling resulting from a lawsuit brought by environmental groups may slow future development along Cascade mountain rivers flowing into Puget Sound. The suit was brought because of a claim by environmentalists that development jeopardized endangered salmon, steelhead and killer whales. The effect of the ruling could shape future construction in floodplains nationwide.
