Study Reach for Klamath River Dam Removal Sediment Study

Detailed Description

Location of Klamath River Basin, study reach, principle streams, dams, and hydroelectric facilities, California and Oregon. Following the removal of four dams along the Klamath River, free-flowing river conditions may result in novel water quality, sediment transport, and geomorphic conditions leading to temporary or longer-term ecological impacts. Basin partners are reliant upon the USGS to provide continuous and discrete monitoring data to support post-dam removal assessments.
