PacifiCorp Agrees to Full Terms of Klamath Dams Removal

This is a major milestone in salmon recovery and restoration. Part of the team involved in this great outcome are the folks at California Trout, who have reported on this development, which comes after decades of hard and dedicated work.

PacifiCorp and Warren Buffett have agreed to the full terms of dam removal on the Klamath River, thus clearing a major obstacle in the long, concerted effort to restore one of California's largest watersheds. This monumental decision validates decades of work on the part of more than 40 partner organizations, including the Karuk, Yurok, and Klamath Tribes, the states of California and Oregon, and commercial fishing and conservation groups.


“It’s great to see the project continuing to move forward. Big dam removals take time. It’s been 20 years since this process of assessing the dams started. It’s been 100 plus years since Klamath salmon, which tribal communities depend upon, had access to the upper basin. This latest agreement all but paves the way for the largest river restoration project in US history to finally be completed.”

– Curtis Knight, Executive Director, California Trout
