YREKA, Calif. -- Plans to remove four California dams from the upper Klamath River drew fire again Tuesday from Siskiyou County officials.
County legal counsel, Thomas Guarino, reported to county supervisors that the county is challenging Pacific Corps plans to bill ratepayers at a higher rate for possible dam removal. He says with the uncertainty that seems to be growing over whether the dams will be removed, it doesn't make sense to raise fees being charged to ratepayers.
Guarino also blasted an upcoming PBS documentary on the Klamath Basin Restoration Agreement, saying it is biased in favor of dam removal. Commissioners are hosting a guest speaker May 8th, Dr. Hauser, who is known as whistleblower in the Interior Department, to speak on the government's role in the dam removal process.
