for the Klamath Basin program  
Sustainable Northwest, along with other partners, recently forged an agreement between California, Oregon, and PacifiCorp — the company that owns four dams on the Klamath River — to use state and private funds to remove the dams beginning in 2020. This renewal grant will support Sustainable Northwest’s efforts to implement the agreement and work with Native Americans, farmers, ranchers, and commercial and sport fisherman to ensure its smooth implementation. This dam removal project is the largest in North America and, once completed, will restore a salmon fishery important to Native peoples and fishermen.
