Klamath dam removal on track to begin early 2023

Experts are “very confident” the decades-long goal of Klamath dam removal is slated to become a reality in 2023.

Removal of PacifiCorp’s four dams along the Klamath River will open 420 miles of salmon-spawning habitat as well as improve water quality and reduce critical temperature conditions that cause an increased disease in fish.

During a news briefing Friday, Mark Bransom, chief executive officer of the Klamath River Renewal Corporation, or KRRC, said, “We are on the cusp of realizing a number of additional important and significant steps that will ultimately lead, we believe, to dam removal.”
