Project: Klamath River at Horse Trough Springs: Floodplain Connection Design Project

Description: Grant to the Mid-Klamath Watershed Council to develop plans, permits, and environmental compliance for a large fisheries restoration project on the Klamath River near Horse Trough Springs. Once implemented the project will remediate mine tailings and reconnect the river to its historic floodplain.
