The fight to remove the four aging dams that have throttled the Klamath River’s once-great salmon and steelhead runs is heating up.
We need your help to succeed.
By telling your senators you support legislation enabling the Klamath Basin Restoration Agreement (KBRA), you’ll increase the Klamath River’s endangered salmon runs by as much as 80% (steelhead will benefit too).
Removing the four lower Klamath River dams will open up nearly 400 miles of salmon and steelhead spawning habitat — and remove the source of toxic algae blooms that turn the Klamath pea-soup green every summer.
It’s time for these aging dams to come out — and for a healthy Klamath River to once again become one of the largest salmon producers on the west coast.
What is The KBRA?
The KBRA is an agreement among 26 diverse groups who grew tired of the lawsuits and lack of progress in the Klamath basin.
Under the KBRA, the lower four Klamath Dams would come down, and salmon habitat restoration projects would revitalize 400 miles of prime habitat opened to salmon.
Irrigators — suffering for years from unpredictable water supplies — would be able to count on regular water deliveries.
And the Klamath’s economically depressed surroundings would benefit from 4600 jobs — including new agriculture and recreation jobs.
