Interior Secretary Pens Letter Supporting Klamath Dam Removal

Interior Secretary Deb Haaland released a letter last week to the Federal Energy Regulatory Committee in support of Klamath dam removal.

“Dam removal will restore salmonid fisheries, reestablish fish passage, improve water quality and bring new recreation and economic opportunities to the Basin,” Haaland, the nation’s first Native Interior Secretary, wrote. “Moreover, removal will advance the Biden-Harris administrations’ commitments to combat the climate crisis, increasing resilience to the impacts of climate change; protect public health; conserve our lands, waters, and biodiversity; deliver environmental justice, and fulfill the Federal Government’s trust and treaty responsibilities.”
