Hoopa Video: Un-Dam the Klamath

Hoopa Valley Tribal Council Member Hayley Hutt at the California EPA

The Hoopa Valley Tribe agrees that restoration of the Klamath River and its fishery depends on the removal of hydroelectric dams on the upper Klamath River. The dams have degraded water quality and blocked fish spawning habitat for much too long.
The Tribe believes there is a better path to accomplish dam removal than the Klamath Basin Restoration Agreement and the Klamath Hydroelectric Settlement Agreement, which both await federal legislation.
