Newly uncovered information and recent statements by a KRRC board member paints a new picture of double-talk and misinformation

Economics Not Salmon Is the Reason PacifiCorp is Removing the Dams”

— Mr. Glen Spain – Klamath River Renewal Corporation (KRRC) board member

YREKA, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, July 22, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Numerous recent proofs now show that the Klamath River Dam removal project as presented to the public, Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) and to legislators by the non-profit shell-company Klamath River Renewal Corporation (‘KRRC’) is based upon incomplete, flawed and misrepresented information.

Any one of the following six (6) points is more than reason-enough to halt the current project, setting aside the recent transfer of the license by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) until a comprehensive, top to bottom analysis of KRRC’s plan is conducted in consideration of these points, followed by full compliance with NEPA.

Point Number 1:

The Entire Premise (‘It’s about restoring Salmon’) For Klamath River Dam Removal Project by The Minority Consensus of Fishing Zealots and KRRC Is False!

In a July 8, 2021 email to Mr. William E. Simpson II and 100+ other people, including public officials, a member of KRRC’s board of directors, Mr. Glen Spain said;

“Ultimately however whether Salmon did or did not exist above the dams is irrelevant to PacifiCorp’s decision to remove the dams today.”

And near the end of the same email, Mr. Glen Spain reiterates that; “Economics Not Salmon Is the Reason PacifiCorp is Removing the Dams”.

Point Number 2:

Klamath River Salmon Migration Theory Misrepresented.

Recently Uncovered Facts Show Anadromous Salmon never migrated past the site of current-day Copco 1 dam (Ward Canyon).

The key reason that has been widely promoted as the logic behind the removal of the four Klamath River Dam, is that; the Klamath River Dams are blocking the migration of salmon.

Compelling evidence that has been sequestered until now, showing that conjecture by the minority fishing-zealot consensus is factually incorrect.

In fact, there is no hard evidence of any historic salmon migration past Ward Canyon on the Klamath River, which is the present-day site of Copco 1 dam.

On the other hand, there is hard, geologic evidence that salmon never made it past Ward Canyon and the location of the present-day Copco 1 dam.

The evidence is literally ‘rock-hard’, as in a naturally-formed 31-foot-tall lava dam that existed for millennia blocking the path of migratory fish. This dam, made by Nature, was present in 1913 and holding back water in a lake called ‘Clammittee Lake’, at the time construction began on the Copco 1 dam, according to a drawing and narrative by famous engineer and dam builder, J.C. Boyle.
