The image at Wikimedia Commons was already in the article for John Day Dam.

John Day Dam fish ladder view from the Washington (north) side of the Columbia River.

Didn't you see it? I removed your link because it added no extra value to the article. If you add new images not already found in the article, then go ahead and link back. But, until then it is not worth it.

Also, if you want to move all the dam pictures to Wikimedia Commons and then link there go for it.

I disagree, I find having these commons links extremely useful when I'm translating articles into other languages as I can immitately see what images I can use from the commons. Furthermore, just because it only contains one image now people might add to it later which would increase the value of the link. I consider the interproject links to be equivalent to interlanguage links, which you wouldn't remove just because all the information in the linked language already exists at this article. —Ævar Arnfjörð Bjarmason 09:30, 4 November 2005 (UTC)
Can you at least add them without pushing the external links way down the page? WikiDon 09:38, 4 November 2005 (UTC)

1996 blackout[edit]

this story seems like a significant bit of the history of the dam. -Pete (talk) 21:25, 8 December 2007 (UTC)

Still Waters Run Deep And Deadly For Columbia River Salmon

The Modern Day Columbia River – Part Two

Environmentalists often call Columbia River dams “fish killers.” But in fact the deadliest dam isn’t a dam at all: it’s a 76-mile reservoir that pools behind a dam east of The Dalles, Oregon.

In part two of our journey down the Columbia River, correspondent Anna King takes a closer look at the deadly John Day reservoir.

Coordinate error[edit]

{{geodata-check}} The coordinates need the following fixes:

  • Write here

Two Coordinates are listed for "John Day Dam" The first one is correct and this second coordinate may be intended to be for the center of the impoundment but rather than the title of "Lake Umatilla" it is still listed as "John Day Dam" (talk) 22:03, 19 October 2009 (UTC)

Both sets of coordinates in the article indicate the same dam structure, which spans across a state boundary. BrainMarble (talk) 22:19, 14 December 2009 (UTC)
