house nrBishop: Administration More Interested in Destroying Dams than Generating Affordable Hydroelectricity

Washington, D.C. – Yesterday, Department of the Interior (DOI) Secretary Sally Jewell urged the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to approve the destruction of four dams on the Klamath River in California and Oregon. Chairman Rob Bishop (R-UT) issued the following statement:


 
“The administration’s priorities are crystal clear when the federal government takes more time to study and approve plans for a single dam than it took to send a man to the moon. They spend a lot of time focusing on dam removal when they should be prioritizing plans to construct new, multi-purpose water storage. Our nation is missing out on cheaper, cleaner and more abundant sources of energy while drought stricken communities grasp for much needed water storage, thanks to the administration's narrow-mindedness. In the absence of announcements from the administration to move forward on long-delayed water projects, this symbolizes they are more concerned with removing water infrastructure than building it."
