About the KRRC

Our Story

The Klamath River Renewal Corporation, or KRRC, is a private, independent nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization formed by signatories of the amended Klamath Hydroelectric Settlement Agreement, or KHSA. KRRC is part of a cooperative effort to re-establish the natural vitality of the Klamath River so that it can support all communities in the basin. Signatories of the amended KHSA, including the States of California and Oregon, local governments, Tribal nations, dam owner PacifiCorp, irrigators, and several conservation and fishing groups, appointed KRRC to take ownership and oversee removal of four hydroelectric dams on the river. KRRC’s work is funded by PacifiCorp customer surcharges and California Proposition 1 water bond funds.

The people of the Klamath basin will continue to work together during and after dam removal to take further steps toward a shared, sustainable future. KRRC supports efforts to fashion broader agreements among tribal nations, farmers and ranchers, fishermen, environmental organizations, and local communities to address those issues related to economic and natural resource management in the basin which are not resolved by the amended KHSA.

KRRC values transparency and cooperation with all stakeholders. We are committed to working with residents and governments to minimize any nuisance or negative impacts while enhancing the project’s local benefits.
