Upper Klamath Basin
Looks like it's gonna be a dry year.
We'll need to rely more on irrigated water.
As farmers take more water, river levels drop, leaving less for wildlife and Native American tribes
Downstream the Klamath River
Lower Klamath Basin
How are we going to get by this year?
Why are there so few salmon recently?
After Klamath Basin farmers take their water, there is not enough left for Native American tribes and wildlife.
Irrigation in this basin will have to be turned off.
Now our crops are going to die!!
Critical habitats for wildlife also need water!
This is our ancestral homeland and we rely on the water too!!
Agreements were eventually reached. However, will the peace last...?
