The US Bureau of Reclamation awarded a multi-million dollar contract to conduct an economic and environmental study of the removal of four dams on the Klamath River in Oregon and California. Stillwater is part of the winning team, led by CDM Federal Programs Corporation. Stillwater is leading scientific analyses related to sediment transport, water quality, fisheries biology, and ecosystem restoration for the project, which will provide critical information to support the US Department of the Interior's Secretarial Determination on the feasibility of dam removal. Stillwater's previous work on the Klamath, including specific studies to assess potential biological impacts of dam removal, was instrumental in awarding the contract.
