From article on 10-year anniversary of Edwards Dam removal:

In Oregon, Gov. Ted Kulongoski was expected to sign a bill to raise $180 million for removing four hydroelectric dams rising from 60 to 162 feet on the Klamath River, freeing up long-blocked salmon runs. Work could begin around 2020 if it can be done safely.

"That is going to be an internationally significant river restoration project," said Lindloff. "It will be the largest dam removal project in the history of the world as far was we know."
