Environmental groups band together to expedite dam removal

A coalition of environmental groups that are not satisfied with the pending plan to remove four dams on the Klamath River in Oregon and California are proposing legislation they say will expedite the process.

The coalition, called the Klamath Conservation Partners, has drafted legislation that separates the plan to remove the dams from another plan that includes provisions to restore the river basin and to improve fish habitat.

The existing legislation is called the Klamath Hydroelectric Settlement Agreement.

The coalition wants a plan for removal of the dams to be submitted to congress by 2012, which is eight years earlier than originally proposed.

An agreement to remove the dams from the river in Southern Oregon and Northern California is expected to be signed next month.
