‘Momentous:’ Feds advance largest dam demolition in history

FILE - Jamie Holt, lead fisheries technician for the Yurok Tribe, right, and Gilbert Myers count dead chinook salmon pulled from a trap in the lower Klamath River on June 8, 2021, in Weitchpec, 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. Several tribes in the region, including the Yurok, have been fighting for years to see the dams come down to aid the recovery of struggling salmon populations. (AP Photo/Nathan Howard, File)
