2017-Present: Restoring the River In 2017, COID decided to remove the structures and dams. An environmental investigation revealed hazardous chemicals at the site left over from the power production years, so special care was taken to clear away harmful substances from the surrounding area.

Nationally, 40% of schools participating in farm-to-school programs sourced milk locally, but in Oregon, that number is 58% and growing.
