The largest river restoration project in U.S. history is back on track. In July, a federal regulatory decision stalled the plan to remove four dams along the Klamath River in Oregon and California. On Tuesday, the two states announced a new agreement along with two northwest tribes and PacifiCorp, which owns four dams on the Klamath River, that will allow the project to continue. We’ll hear about the new agreement from Mark Bransom, CEO of the Klamath River Renewal Corporation, and Amy Bowers Cordalis, general counsel for the Yurok Tribe.
