When the removal of the dams takes place how can we see to it that the silt is filtered first to remove all the gold which has to be in the sediment that has built up over 50 to 100 years. If this is not done first would we not lose this value and wouldn't this same sediment moving down stream create a masive fish kill off?
Now to have the value of this gold put to use building the vastly needed renewable power to reduce the cost to operate the pumping system for the 220,000 acres that are leased to local farmers here in the Klamath Basin. This can be done through the creation of a decentralized power agreement would become a public private partnership structured as a farmers coopertive. Would you consider this as a means to teach our nation and the world about citizen stewardship and regional sustainability.
