A recent 400-page report from the U.S. Geological Survey suggests that the benefits from removing four dams on the Klamath River outweigh the costs of removal by “as much as 47.6 to one.” The benefits would come primarily from the restoration of salmon and other anadramous fish populations. This would benefit commercial and recreational fishers. Other ecosystem improvements would also provide recreational benefits. In addition to the construction related costs of dam removal, the loss would primarily be recreational with the loss of the reservoirs.
