Today, in a filing to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), the Klamath River Renewal Corporation (KRRC) answered important, substantive questions FERC asked to evaluate KRRC’s capacity to become licensee for the Lower Klamath Project (Project) and remove the four dams on the Klamath River. View the full press release here.
California Trout has also drafted a letter to FERC in support of dam removal on the Klamath River. We asked our members to sign on to our letter to ask FERC to approve the Klamath River Renewal Corporation (KRRC) as the licensee of the Klamath Hydroelectric Settlement Agreement (KHSA), which would allow the dam removal to move forward. The plan to remove four aging hydroelectric dams on the Klamath River is in jeopardy until FERC transfers ownership of the dams from PacifiCorp (the current owner) to KRRC.
You can add your name to our letter until July 31, 2019. CalTrout will be submitting our letter to FERC by August 1st. Visit https://caltrout.org/action-alert/ to learn more.
