Report says dam removal good for Klamath salmon

FILE - This Aug. 21, 2009 file photo shows Iron Gate Dam spanning the Klamath River near Hornbrook, Calif. A federal report says removing this dam and three others on the Klamath River in Oregon and California and restoring ecosystems will produce a big increase in salmon harvests and boost farm revenues. The 400-page report was produced by federal scientists to help the secretary of Interior evaluate whether it is in the public interest to go ahead with the $1 billion project, which is considered the biggest dam removal in U.S. history if it goes through as planned in 2020.
