‘Momentous:’ Feds advance largest dam demolition in history

FILE - The Klamath River winds runs along Highway 96 on June 7, 2021, near Happy Camp, Calif. The largest dam demolition and river restoration plan in the world could be close to reality Thursday, Nov. 17, 2022, as U.S. regulators vote on a plan to remove four aging hydro-electric structures, reopening hundreds of miles of California river habitat to imperiled salmon. The vote by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission on the lower Klamath River dams is the last major regulatory hurdle and the biggest milestone facing a $500 million demolition proposal championed by Native American tribes and environmentalists for years.
