Settlement shrouded fish kill

Please read article, cited after the quote. Articles open in a new window.

The Boy Scouts of America’s Monterey Bay Council operated a summer dam on a pristine river and — despite official warnings — allegedly killed federally protected steelhead trout downstream.

And when state and federal regulators sought to have the dam removed, Scout executives turned to politicians to whom they had given campaign contributions or with whom they had personal ties.

The Scout council avoided fines and quietly secured a favorable settlement agreement that, until now, has obscured a full account of its conduct at Camp Pico Blanco on the Little Sur River, north of the rugged Big Sur coast.
