VERBATIM: Federal regulators approved a plan last year to remove four dams on the Klamath (KLAH muth) River. The dams were first built decades ago to generate electricity. But they also disrupted the river’s flow and the lifecycle of salmon. The dams are scheduled to be completely removed by the end of 2024. The project will cost about $500 million and is being paid for by taxpayers and utility ratepayers.
