This grant will fund the implementation of the Klamath Hydroelectric Settlement Agreement (KHSA), and all amendments thereto. The KHSA is a historic agreement signed by two states, the Federal Government, multiple sovereign tribes, local authorizes, water users, fisherman, environmentalists, and famers that seeks to undertake the largest dam removal effort in American history—all in an effort to free nearly 200 miles of endangered co-ho and sucker habitat along the Klamath River. Specifically, the State of California, acting through the California Natural Resources Agency, has agreed to fund removal of four dams commonly referred to as follows: - J.C. Boyle, Copco 1, Copco 2, and Iron Gate - and associated restoration and mitigation projects (collectively referred to as the Klamath Facilities) as required by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission who is charged with authorizing their decommissioning.
