SMRF is wrong on dam issue

Editor,

Just wanted to applaud the Heritage Association of San Marcos for their support of maintaining Cape’s Dam.  

They must have reviewed the extensive references which Brian Olson has gotten together on the subject and concluded as I have that it makes sense to keep the dam.

The historical, environmental, and recreational importance of the dam/mill race system demands the City Council at a minimum conduct studies by the Historical Commission, an environmental impact study, and a recreational use study by knowledgeable people in the local area before making a decision. SMRF’s program of protecting the river watershed from unsuitable development is great, but they are wrong on the dam issue.
