background on Klamath dams @;
This from the Riverkeepers;
"Klamath Dams Need to Go
The River then goes through a series of dams and diversions that pollute the water and cause it to stagnate, before winding into the steep wild canyons of the mid-Klamath. These dams, which are owned by Pacific Power, block all migrating fish and cause toxic alga that are dangerous to humans and animals, and warm the water. These dams are up for renewal, which gives us a rare opportunity that only happens every fifty years, to remove these fish killing dams. All tribes and environmental groups that work on the Klamath are working to remove these dams."
Please attend public comments and/or write and tell FERC that their DEIS for the Klamath dams in not adequate for protecting migratory salmon, lamprey, sturgeon etc.. from the toxic algae in the reservoirs, trap and haul won't work!!
