Copco 2 is one of four dams expected to be removed in the world’s largest dam removal project.
Starting this month, crews began working to help prepare for the other removals.
Mark Bransom, CEO for the Klamath River Renewal Corporation, says great progress has been made so far.
“This is a real success for the dam removal project, but there still remains a lot of work to be done to complete the removal of Copco #2,” said Bransom. “That work is expected to extend out probably until at least early September.”
Bransom said this work is preparation for the other dam removals next summer.
