Leaders Mark Approval Klamath River Dams Project

(Siskiyou County, CA) -- Tribal and government leaders held an event along the Klamath River in Siskiyou County, California today marking the start of a project to remove four dams on the Klamath River. It's taken 15 years of work to get the approvals needed to remove dams with the goal of restoring salmon runs. Work will start next year in preparation for dam removal. The first dam could be removed by next summer. The remaining three dams will be removed in 2024. Nearly six-million dollars will be spent on four tribal water projects to restore the aquatic ecosystems along the river.
