Comment Period for Klamath Dams Draft EIS/EIR Extended

Comment Period Will End on December 30, 2011

The following statement was issued today by Dennis Lynch, Program Manager for the Secretarial Determination on Klamath River dam removal, regarding the extension of the public comment period for the Draft Environmental Impact Statement/Environmental Impact Report (EIS/EIR):
“The decision to remove or retain four Klamath River dams is of immense importance to the many Klamath Basin communities. In addition to the peer reviewed science and the environmental analysis, public comments on the Draft EIS/EIR is also an important and critical component in shaping this decision. The Department of the Interior and the California Department of Fish and Game listened to the numerous requests to extend the comment period on this lengthy Draft EIS/EIR and determined that it is in the best interest of the public to give additional time to review and comment. Therefore, we have extended the comment period through Friday, December 30, 2011.”
