SCWUA and Jackson County letters to FERC, and Motion To Dismiss, regarding Klamath dam removal, 3/12/2020.
“Fish Passage” Siskiyou County Water Users response, by SCWUA to KRRC/Klamath Dam Removal group 2/19/2020. "The real solution to the issues at hand is to retain the hydro facilities and to improve the damage done in the “1964 floods” (increasing the capacity of existing “redds”) to the Klamath River and find other solutions to water quality coming from Oregon.  This river damage included severely impairing the hydrography of the Klamath River. Let’s hope that sanity will prevail at some point to provide economically doable solutions."
On the subject of Klamath salmon restoration, by Werner Hoyt, PE, Lake Shastina 3/14/2020. "What were the annual runs through the 1980’s.  On the Klamath we had bumper runs up through the 70’s.  What happened?
* Marine mammals protection act.  We now have upwards of 300,000 to 500,000 from San Francisco to Vancouver Canada
* Salmon are a transpacific migratory fish.  Heavy fishing in Asia has obliterated returns.  Mechanized fishing outside of the 200 mile economic zone by foreign fisheries as well
* Increase in ocean surface temperature moving the migration paths north.
    We have increasing pressure by all three of the above conditions and a power generation and operating history on the Columbia of 80 plus years.  Tend to believe that while there may be some impact by power generation if we look at the whole picture, power plant removal is not warranted.  Glad the feds recognized this."

 3/6/2020 - SCWUA requested that we run their letter again concerning the Klamath Compact Commissioner's, Chrysten  Lambert's, conflict of interest regarding Klamath dam removal. "(Lambert) was appointed in 2015 by then President Obama to act as Federal Representative to the Klamath Compact.  Under her leadership no meetings were conducted until the recent June 18, 2019 meeting in Klamath Falls at OIT.  Our letter explains our reasoning for requesting that she be removed from office and a new Federal Representative be appointed to represent the current President, Donald Trump..."
