The biggest dam removal in the USA: Locals are dealing with the aftermath.

For years the fight for the dam removals has been going on. Finally and unexpectedly they signed the contract and they did it. 4 dams are being removed. The Klamath River will flow freely and everything goes as planned, They say. Truth is that the river and surroundings is dead, and the aftermath is worse then expected. You can find info about this on the internet and on YouTube, and none are honest about the whole situation. I found it so upsetting that the media isn’t showing the truth. I will make some videos as time passes. My man and I own a beautiful piece of property on the Klamath River and we are working on our dream retirement cabin, and this makes us involved. We have front row seats to watch this disaster unfold.. As the river and Copco Lake changes, I will show what I see.. Also I think it is necessary to let the locals speak. They / we are the ones who have to deal with this mess daily. Thanks for watching. I hope it gives you an idea of the truth.

First I show you briefly some of the beauty we miss on our property on the Klamath River, Followed by a drive half way around Copco Lake and what my thoughts are on seeing nobody there.. A river neighbor talks about her well.. These things the News won’t show. And gain, this series of videos will be continued. Thanks for watching and bring interested. It means a lot to me and to the community.


  1. Thank you for being “balanced”. My grandfather lived in Weitchpec working as a forest service log scaler who loved nature/creation til around 1975 and my childhood has many wonderful memories of fishing on the Klamath in the 60s. With fires and now
    In this out there…It is devastating. Yes please keep us updated and keep trying to find a media source who is willing to stick there neck out so more know what is happening out there! The toxic water will be going into the Pacific Ocean!

  2. I need to be corrected… aren’t toxicity testing levels still pending? If so, how is the last statement if this comment valid? And if we’re crying over warm water invasive fish such as bass, carp, etc, why weren’t listening sessions attended heavily? The reality is that the river was restored close to what the first non native peoples saw it as. And after H.O.A’s, genocide, and assimilation, it has finally been put back the way it was founded. What opposers don’t want published on YouTube is the factual history of the river, how the effects of dams scarred multiple Tribe’s lives, the historical gapping it’s caused, and the very close elimination of the river’s ecosystem itself. It sucks private property appraisals will dive. I’m genuine about that. It’s celebratory the PUBLIC utilities see it differently. It’s life changing for the better for the peoples who were just here first. We owe more than a river to the centuries of genocide and assimilation.

    The river is at its darkest time .it had to be done for it to survive.
    Give it time for it to heal.
    River ecosystem is so much more important than what the system was before.
    There is no other way to rip the bandage off it will heal

  4. I am still amazed that there was so little regard given to the lake ecosystem that had been there for 70 years. Nobody seems to care that everything in the lakes was killed. All I hear is how wonderful it is to restore the river, which was already beautiful, healthy and sustaining life. I guess genocide for whatever your own cause is is okay.

  5. Nick,
    Your words are true. Thank you for speaking them. 70 years of a man made lake wiped out thousands of years of tribal grounds. Pushed out of and off their sacred grounds. And yes healing will take awhile, but it will be better restored to whence before.
    I did notice how quickly no one wanted anyone to see the vehicle in the lake after years. Funny how secrets pop-up when the water draws down. Just like Lake Meade behind Hoover dam when that level dropped due to too many people, drought, and not enough water. But all the secrets and bodies they found there in!
    The property owners need to move on and accept it. They still have their lands. After all the Indians had no choice did they. They were run off and robbed. Time to return to the tribes what was stolen…their life’s!

  6. Such a relief to see the dams removed on the Klamath. The Klamath River can now start the healing process like we’re seeing on the Elwha after dam removals there.
