Klamath Levee Blast


In October 2007 the Nature Conservancy used explosives to breach two miles of levees along Upper Klamath Lake. This is part of a larger project to restore marsh wetlands that once dominated the Williamson River Delta and is home to two endangered species of sucker fish. One of several partners, OWEB has provided $2 million in Oregon Lottery funds for the restoration project. See the spectacular footage as we learn how it was done and why.
