Mr. President: tear down these dams

President Obama:
Tourism is the number one service we export. Every year, tens of millions of tourists come from all over the world to visit America. They stay in our hotels, eat at our restaurants, and see all the sights America has to offer. That’s good for local businesses. That’s good for local economies. And the more folks who visit America, the more Americans we get back to work. It’s that simple.
Tear out the Missouri River dams, Mr. President: rewild the West.

Two pix of an artesian well discharging hundreds of gallons per minute of 133 degree water into Orman Dam. At least two wells were drilled in the vicinity looking for oil (if you know of more, let's hear about it): one discharging at 106 is the source of the Butte-Meade water supply. The one in the photos is a gold mine waiting for the right person to convince its owner to fight being capped by the state.
