A Letter from Ventura County from a Klamath Basin native and KBC response, 12/23/04, "I am involved opposing a project here in Ventura County, (www.matilijadam.org) they want to take a dam out so the steelhead trout can swim up stream. In doing so we will be loosing water and water storage and in their EPA it states that they will be disturbing or killing, directly or indirectly, 807 species of plants and wildlife, 15 endangered and 25 sensitive in doing the project over a 7 to 10 year period of time. This seems to be fine because a FISH will get to swim 7 miles more up stream. Do you have any archives of the damage done to the wildlife when the water was taken? "
