Comments sought on dam
(Go HERE for Klamath Courier's, The Sucker Scam for more on dam)
On the Sprague River,
about 30 miles north of Klamath Falls, the
Chiloquin dam restricts endangered Lost River and
shortnose suckers from reaching spawning and
rearing grounds in the river's watershed,
according to a federal press release.
In preparing for the work,
the U.S. Bureau of Indian Affairs has developed an
environmental assessment that outlines the impacts
on the environment of the proposed project and
other options. The document, released Wednesday,
will be open for public comment until May 27.
Written comments regarding
the dam will be accepted at: Bureau of Indian
Affairs, 911 NE 11th Ave., Portland, OR 97232 -
