Storyboard Text

  • 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...?
