Klamath River dam removal talks moving along


California officials expect final agreement in coming weeks

July 31, 2009 Herald and News
Negotiations on a document that could lead to removal of four Klamath River hydropower dams are forging ahead and could be completed in coming weeks.

Kirk Miller, deputy secretary and general counsel for the California Resources Agency, and Pablo Arroyave, the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation’s assistant regional director, said those involved in the discussions, including PacifiCorp, would meet in Klamath Falls next week.

The final agreement will be based on an agreement in principle announced last November.

“I think the parties at the table will reach a dam removal agreement,” Miller said. “We do anticipate concluding the final agreement shortly.”
