Two years ago, a historic agreement was struck to remove four hydroelectric dams on the Klamath river. But the process is far from over. The agreement (pdf) signed by a group of Klamath River stakeholders can only be enacted if approved by Congress and the Department of the Interior.
The Department of the Interior conducted several studies of the area to determine if the dam removal would revive the salmon population. Recently, a former scientific integrity officer has brought the studies into question. He says the studies are too optimistic about the outcomes of the dam removal.
Do you live, fish or farm in the Klamath River basin? How do you feel about the plan to remove Klamath river dams?
