Document Description
The Project involves the decommissioning and removal of the Project dams (J.C. Boyle, Copco No. 1, Copco No. 2, and Iron Gate) and associated facilities by the Klamath River Renewal Cooperation (KRRC). The Project’s purpose is to create a free-flowing Klamath River and to provide for volitional fish passage in the Klamath River where the dams are currently located. The Project includes improving certain roads and bridges, habitat restoration of the former reservoirs and other land, replacing a water supply pipeline used by the City of Yreka, and reopening a fish hatchery. The State Water Resources Control Board is lead agency for the Project. As a responsible agency, CDFW has approval authority over four documents (Co-Licensee Agreement, Hatchery Operations and Maintenance Agreement, commitment to further a proposed transfer of land from KRRC to CDFW, and a environmental resolution agreement) that furthers KRRC’s implementation of the Project
