Tim Frahm, the Central Coast steelhead coordinator for Trout Unlimited, said the deal brings the conservation partners much closer to reviving the Carmel River.
“In 1999, the Carmel River was ranked as one of America’s most threatened rivers,” Frahm said in the statement. “Today the outline of a deal is in place that — combined with the recent San Clemente Dam Removal Project — offers real hope of making the Carmel one of the nation’s most restored waterways.”
