CA, OR Governors to Make ‘Major Announcement’ on Klamath


Just months after dam removal efforts on the Klamath River seemed to suffer a catastrophic setback, California Gov. Jerry Brown, Oregon Gov. Kate Brown and a host of officials will gather near the river’s mouth Wednesday to make a “major announcement about water supply reliability, environmental restoration and hydroelectric dams.”

It’s unclear exactly what the announcement will be, but it’s expected the officials will present a ratification of a new deal to revive what’s been dubbed the largest dam removal project in the nation’s history. The press release says only that the officials will be making an announcement that will “further progress toward the largest river restoration project in U.S. history.”
