The removal of Iron Gate, Copco 1 and 2 and JC Boyle dams on the Klamath River will open up the habitat to chinook and coho salmon and steelhead. The fish have not been able to migrate past the Iron Gate in nearly a century, though the river used to be teeming with salmon and steelhead. This was a historic resource for several local Native American tribes. The dams were also providing power and irrigation waters. The impact of dam removal may increase the health of the river but it will have an impact on water access and property values to real estate near the Copco reservoir.
