Wyden, Merkley Statement on Klamath Dam Removal

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Sens. Ron Wyden and Jeff Merkley released the following statement on today’s Klamath Dam announcement by Oregon and California:

“Oregon and California have made the best of a bad situation forced upon the two states when FERC upset the Klamath Hydroelectric Settlement Agreement dam removal process with an unexpected and unwelcome ruling last summer,” said Wyden and Merkley. “We’re glad to see the states step up and all the parties that signed the Klamath settlement reach this agreement, and we look forward to seeing these dams come out just as soon as humanly possible.”
