California dams are constantly being decommissioned for various reasons. Who is responsible for destroying the hard work Californian's have contributed to the watershed? Come along with us for a California Sun Outdoor Adventure as we explore why the dams are being removed and who is responsible, and worst yet, who is paying for it.
An agreement was reached regarding the removal of Copco #1, Copco #2, Iron Gate Dam and the J.C. Boyle Dam all along the Klamath River. Has Klamath River Dam been removed? Not yet and we are here to create a movement to stop the removal of our dams in order to preserve the current habitats and benefits of our dams.
We challenge the narrative that the removal of the dams will be worth the money and effort in terms of ecological conservation. We reject the actions and question the agenda of those parties under agreement.
