Klamath River Renewal Corporation Holding Open Houses on Dam Removal

KR

 

The Klamath River Renewal Corporation (KRRC) is hosting a series of open house meetings for the public on the evenings of Nov. 7-9.

Under the terms of the amended Klamath Hydroelectric Settlement Agreement, KRRC is charged with removing four PacifiCorp dams on the Klamath River (JC Boyle, Copco, No. 1 & 2, and Iron Gate), restoring formerly inundated lands, and implementing required mitigation measures in compliance with all applicable federal, state, and local regulations.

The purpose of the open house meetings is to provide an opportunity for residents of the Klamath Basin to meet KRRC staff, board members and consultants, learn about KRRC’s project and objectives, and ask questions.

At each open house, residents will be invited to visit a series of stations organized around topics on interest, including project scope and timeline, jobs, other project benefits, and project impacts.
