Klamath River Dam Removal Setback

Interior Secretary Ken Salazar said Monday that he won't be able to meet next month's deadline for deciding whether to remove four dams on the Klamath River. Dam removal is part of the agreements signed in Salem two years ago to end a century of fighting over water in the Klamath basin. A bill authorizing Salazar to make the decision was introduced in Congress last year, but has not yet received a committee hearing. Salazar says that work will continue on scientific studies, as will efforts to get authorization through Congress.
