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, CNRA has approval authority over two documents (Co-Licensee Agreement and Funding Implementation Agreement) that further KRRC’s implementation of the Project.
