KRRC Paints an overall image of what their plan of the Klamath River is between JC Boyle and Irongate dams.
Klamath Falls, Ore. - The Klamath River Renewal Corporation (KRRC) came to Oregon Tech to visit with stakeholders Tuesday night about the planned change in ownership and removal of the dams on the Klamath River (John C. Boyle, Copco 1, Copco 2, and Irongate).
KRRC's job is to take owner ship of the four PacificCorp Klamath River Dams then remove these dams, restore formally inundated lands and implement required mitigation measures in compliance with all applicable federal, state and local regulations.
PacificCorp will continue to operate the dams in the interim.
Dams upstream of the JC Boyle are not part of the KRRC project - Keno and Link River Dams. PacificCorp will transfer ownership of the Keno Dam to the United States Government under the amended Klamath Hydroelectric Settlement Agreement (KHSA) but both dams will remain operational.
Removal of the hydroelectric dams in the first step to restore health of the Klamath River and the communities that depend on it.
