SEATTLE — What supporters are calling the largest river and salmon restoration effort in American history took a critical step forward on Thursday, when formal agreements were signed to remove four dams and revise how water is shared in the Klamath River basin in southern Oregon and Northern California.
◼ It's signed! Klamath dam pacts signed in Oregon Capitol
Way to go, Jill, Troy and Craig!
The local naysayers have an Op-Ed in the TS today:
◼ Why the Humboldt Watershed Council cannot support the Klamath settlement

Poor Humboldt Watershed Council - they were never a party to the talks in the first place and were never a party to sign it anyway.
The LOCAL enviro groups who WERE invited to the table, and who helped craft the agreement up until the point they had to sign away their right to sue have shown why it isn't worth inviting them to the table anyway, they're gonna back out, stab you in the back and sue anyway. (It doesn't bode well for the MLPA "stakeholders" group)
But guess what:
Environmental Defense Fund, a leading national nonprofit organization, represents more than 700,000 members... Commends Leadership, Collaboration on Historic Klamath River Restoration
So, all those "UnDam the Klamath" fundraisers? Where did that money go? 'Cause it didn't go into this agreement.
