  1. Regarding my comment about a dam on the Union River, Kathleen Cahall, Bremerton’s water resources manger, points out that Casad Dam may provide an unusual benefit for the Union River. For one thing, salmon migration is blocked by a natural waterfall, McKenna Falls, below the dam, not by the dam itself. Also, the dam helps to maintain a minimal stream flow during late summer when the summer chum start entering the river.

    How rare is it to find one of the H’s — hydro — that might actually help the salmon run?

  2. The City of Bremerton also safeguards the water quality in the headwaters of the Union River through careful management of the 3,000-acre watershed. This water is protected for drinking water use.
