After years of negotiations, the Klamath River Basin Restoration Agreement (KBRA), or simply the Restoration Agreement was finalized yesterday. The agreement aims to restore salmon population, revitalize commercial fishing and support farming by local tribes while also hoping that irrigation water will be more appropriately allocated. Pacific Corps, the owner of the project, however, did not participate in the the settlement. On the other hand, discussions for the removal of the four dams is still ongoing.
