Construction crews continue to make progress on the deconstruction of Copco No. 2. The smallest of the four Klamath Hydroelectric dams slated for removal. Copco No. 2 is being removed to clear the way for Copco No. 1’s drawdown coming this January. While crews are working fast, the complete deconstruction of Copco No. 2 and its infrastructure won’t be completed until September.
When these photos were taken earlier this week, the Yurok Tribe Construction Corporation crew was working just downstream in an area known as Wards Canyon, where they are preparing this historic segment of the river to receive flows again.
The Yurok Tribal Council has authorized the creation and certification of the new Yurok Tribe Construction Corporation, a Yurok Tribe wholly owned enterprise. This Corporation is a for-profit construction business enterprise and will manage and conduct construction projects both on and off the Yurok Reservation.
