The possible removal of the
Chiloquin Dam on the Sprague River will be
the focus of the public meeting of the Modoc
Point Irrigation District at 6 p.m. Aug.
The meeting originally
scheduled for Friday has been canceled.
Discussions between officials
with the district and the Bureau of Indian
Affairs led to an agreement that removal of
the dam was the best option to increase fish
passage on the river.
An election to approve the
final terms of the damís removal is
scheduled for Sept. 22, but district
are holding the meeting on Aug. 30 to
provide copies of the agreement its
constituents. Officials from the bureaus of
Indian Affairs and Reclamation will also be
on hand to answer any questions.
Any questions regarding the damís removal
should be directed to the districtís
attorney, Laura A. Schroeder at (503)
