Lower Klamath Project License Surrender
Document Type
NOP - Notice of Preparation of a Draft EIR
Document Description
Note: Review Per Lead The KRRC is proposing to remove sufficient portions of the Iron Gate, Copco No. 2, Copco No. 1, and J.C. Boyle dam developments to create a free flowing Klamath River and provide for volitional fish passage in the Klamath River currently occupied by these dam developments. The hydroelectric facilities and associated structures will either by removed or decommissioned in place. The LKP would require improvements to roads, construction of staging areas, and creation of onsite debris disposal sites. The LKP would also require changes to the city of Yreka's Fall Creek water supply. Yreka receives 15 cfs of water through a 24-in diameter pipe that runs from the Fall Creek dam development, crosses the Klamath River near the upstream end of Iron Gate reservoir, to the city of Yreka's water distribution system.
