GLENDIVE, Mont. — There is a quiet corner on the Yellowstone River, across from the Glendive Intake Diversion Dam’s canal entrances, where pallid sturgeon gather in the spring as they try to find a way upriver to spawn.

That quiet spot is where a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and Bureau of Reclamation project has proposed constructing a fish bypass channel that the endangered species could use to find a way upriver.

The project, however, has run afoul of environmental groups. They want to see the underwater weir, which has served 58,000 acres of cropland in the MonDak for more than 100 years, removed instead.
