Board urges no action on the Klamath Dam
At the suggestion of E. Larson Myers of Klamath, the Board of Supervisors Monday wired to an executive meeting of the Fish and Game Commission in San Diego not to take any action on an application by the California-Oregon Power Company to build a dam on the Klamath River until a public hearing has been held somewhere in Northern California.
Myers said his attention had been called to the matter by Charley Bohrmann, chairman of the engineering committee of the Associated Sportsmen of California.
In his letter to Myers, Bohrmann said the sportsmen oppose the dam, which under the plan would be constructed at Iron Gate, unless COPCO is required to provide, operate and maintain fishery relocation facilities below the dam, as is now being done on federal projects.
The Association Sportsmen have also asked the Federal Power Commission not to grant any additional power plant licenses to COPCO in California unless the fishery spawning grounds are protected.
