The meetings, open to the public, will feature updates on the process to inform the decision of whether or not four dams on the Klamath River will be removed and “provide specific information about various technical studies being undertaken as part of the process, and provide an opportunity to obtain feedback from the public and to answer questions,” according to the notice.
One meeting will be held at the Copco Community Center, 27803 Copco Road from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. and the other will take place at the Yreka Community Center, 825 North Oregon Street from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
The studies undertaken thus far are assessing many aspects associated with the potential removal of the dams, such as whether or not salmon populations will migrate above where the dams now sit, how flows might be affected, the contents of sediments in the reservoirs and numerous others.
According to many of the researchers involved in the determination effort, reports are expected starting in the spring of 2011.
