Seattle Times notes Tulalip’s tidal power site

The Seattle Times has an article mentioning Daryl Williams’ tidal power Web site.

Among the questions to be addressed are environmental issues, mainly how tidal-power projects will affect marine mammal and fish migrations. Washington tribes say they fear tidal-power projects throughout the Sound will send orcas away and disrupt salmon runs.

“We’re not opposed to someone like the PUD doing the studies, because that’s the only way we’re going to find out,” said Daryl Williams, the Tulalip Tribes’ environmental liaison. “But from what we’ve seen in other countries where tidal power already exists, those types of studies haven’t been done.”
