Meanwhile, the first Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR) on the 3 dams of the upper Klamath River was just released. I have not read the report in its entirety, but I found this article interesting and thought I'd share it.

The question that the results of this draft report begs is this: if some 20 million cubic yards of sediment behind the three dams released into the Klamath will not result in any significant long term (up to 24 months) negative impact on the water quality of the river, how can a minute fraction of that sediment moved by dredgers and (gasp, scratch your head) high bankers using settling pools be considered a major negative impact????
Maybe I'm missing something as I've just recently started researching this topic from a miner's perspective. But I thought I'd post it as a conversation topic. Maybe someone has some insight as to what the issue could mean for dredging and high banking the Klamath in the near future.

In the case against dredging and mining there are not only powerful forces at work, but also government entities whose staff have been trained by environmental factions for many years. They are then placed in positions of authority and influence with the sole purpose of pushing the environmental agenda.
For them the question has never been about what is reasonable or best science, it is instead about shutting down mining and removing dams nation-wide as a tool to control people and land.
