Construction of dams and reservoirs on the Lower Klamath River could take place in the late-1960s, the Hoopa Tribal council was warned Friday night. Warning the council was Donald Kennedy, Weaverville attorney.
Prior to last week, water from the Klamath and Trinity rivers was not expected to be needed before 1982 for heavily populated central and Southern California areas, Kennedy said. However, California’s loss last week of the California-Arizona suit over Colorado River water may speed up developments on the Klamath, he added.
