Developments in the Klamath
Environmental issues and the Klamath have been a familiar couple for some time. This week, in an interesting development, PacifiCorp, a private utility that owns or operates several hydroelectric facilities in the Klamath Basin, agreed in principle to removing the dams. Such a step may go a long way toward avoiding clashes in the future between Tribes, Fishermen, Environmentalists, Farmers, and the Feds. In a related matter, the Secretary of the Interior announced a finalized Agreement in Principle pertaining to the Klamath Basin Restoration Agreement that could, again in theory, result in the removal of hydropower facilities on the Klamath.
