How hydropower relicensing clears a path for migratory trout and salmon
Today the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) released its draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) on the proposed removal of the lower four Klamath River dams. The public is now invited to comment on the DEIS which describes the impacts and benefits of the project.
Dams are the single most significant factor in the decline of Atlantic salmon in Maine. Recovering the runs will only happen if we remove other dams on the Penobscot and Kennebec rivers.
