The Year that Didn’t Need to Happen,

2001 was a year for history. There was before 2001 and after 2001. In the Upper Klamath Basin, specifically the Klamath Reclamation Project stretching 24 miles from Klamath Falls, Oregon to Tulelake California, water that had been delivered for nearly 90 years to irrigate agricultural lands and sustain wildlife refuges was in danger of being shut-off. Two endangered fish, the coho salmon and sucker fish, had protected water requirements along with a new flow study, the Hardy report, that required much higher flows from the Upper Klamath Basin down the Klamath River. There were demands on the Federal Government to do something. And there was only one thing that the Government could do and that was the Bureau of Reclamation to shut-off, for the first time, the Klamath Reclamation Project.
