Congressman Doc Hastings will talk about the the Saving Our Dams and New Hydropower Development and Jobs Act at the American Society of Civil Engineers' meeting.
Introduced by Hastings, the act protects and promotes hydropower resources by ending practices that diminish existing hydropower, cutting regulatory red-tape, generating new non-federal funding for new projects and improving transparency.
The event is at 11:30 a.m. Wednesday at Shilo Inn, 50 Comstock Way, Richland.
O'Callahan's will provide lunch. Cost is $15, due at the door.
RSVP one day prior to the event with Teresa Peterson of HDR Inc. at 546-2046.
