The odds of the Chehalis dam being built is less than 50% IMO. My reasoning is that the Corps can't get it over the mandated 1:1 B:C ratio. Therefore no federal dollars, unless the local movers and shakers (some old local money and real estate development interests) can swing a Congressional over-ride, and that chit was already spent 15+ years ago. But political memories are short, so never say never. The plan is presently "owned" by 3 counties: Lewis, Thurston, and Grays Harbor, and the WDOE. If the plan were put up to a vote in any or all of the counties, it would fail. However, if the decision were made by county commissioners and the governor, they might be persuaded by those movers and shakers to stiff the taxpayers for this boondoggle project, despite the bad benefit cost ratio.
