River Temperature Ruling
FILE - In this Dec. 30, 2006 file photo, the beginning of the spring-fed Metolius River slides through towering pines with Mount Jefferson in the background, near Sisters, Ore. A federal court has approved an agreement that salmon advocates hope will lead to cooler water for salmon in rivers in Oregon. But whether that turns out to be the case remains a muddy question. The court struck down Oregon water temperature standards that make allowances for warmer waters that are not the result of discharges from factories and water treatment plants.
