Pages of History: County gives nod to dam on Klamath

From the pages of the Del Norte Triplicate, August 1959.

The county Board of Supervisors, which a week earlier had sent a wire to the California Fish and Game Commission asking that it refrain at this time from approving a proposed Calif­ornia-Oregon Power Co. dam on the Klamath River, reversed its stand Monday.

Supervisor Harold Del Ponte was authorized to communicate with the commission to state that further investigation has revealed that plans for the dam are not objectionable.

Larry Myers of Klamath, who had appeared before the board to ask that the commission be wired the disapproving message, told Del Ponte that upon being given the full facts, he was convinced that plans of the company would not destroy the fish spawning grounds of the famous river as had formerly been feared.
