CalTrout has been advocating for the removal of the Klamath dams for 20 years. In 2019, we released the Top 5 California Dams Out report which listed the Klamath dams as one of five dams ripe for removal.
During these 20 years, the Klamath has dealt with serious toxic algal blooms and salmon numbers have dwindled, threatening Tribal subsistence and the West Coast fishing industry. The dams currently block access to more than 300 miles of spawning and rearing habitat for salmon and steelhead.
Our partners at Save California Salmon are calling for an Un-Dam the Klamath Day of Action on Friday, October 23rd.
This Day of Action is critical right now as the owners of the four Klamath dams that are slated for removal–PacifiCorp and their parent company, Berkshire Hathaway–are threatening to pull out of the dam removal agreement and break their promises to Klamath River Tribes.
Learn more about how you can have your voice heard and join in Save California Salmon’s Day of Action below.
Please use your voice this week and help advocate for justice and the removal of the four Klamath River dams. With your help, we can generate the support we need to restore the Klamath River and reconnect habitat for wild fish.
