    Gov. Schwarzenegger's Office ^ | October 12, 2006 | Press Release
    California Governor Schwarzenegger and Oregon Governor Kulongoski today directed their respective state agencies to organize a Klamath Summit to be held before the year ends. The governors have joined forces and are holding the summit to resolve a multitude of complex issues related to the health of the river that impact salmon fishermen, tribes, hydroelectric power and a host of environmental and habitat concerns. “We have the problems of water quality, water supply, listed species, energy generation, and agricultural sustainability expressed in countless ways in the Klamath Basin,” Governor Kulongoski said. “We must forge a consensus on a sustainable approach...

    PacifiCorp may agree to removing dams But such a step to help Klamath salmon runs wouldn't be taken if higher power rates resulted, the utility says The new president of PacifiCorp's power generating division says the utility could agree to remove five dams from the Klamath River to help restore salmon if customers don't have to pay more for electricity. "We have heard the tribes' concerns," PacifiCorp Energy President Bill Fehrman said in a statement posted Wednesday on the utility's Web site. "We are not opposed to dam removal or other settlement opportunities as long as our customers are not...

    I was there today in Saginaw, Texas to meet the Klamath Falls convoy to the Sawgrass Rebellion. Rocky (Issaquahking), Bill Ramson and others whom I had come to know last year in Klamath Falls, Oregon were there with the convoy. There was a great parade. I rode with the bucket (from Klamath Bucket Brigade) for a while and the shovel (from Jarbidge Shovel Brigade) for a while, but mostly walked along side engaging the people watching the parade and asking them to come to the fair to hear the speeches or look up the events on the internet (Klamath Falls...

    Court tosses Bush plan for Klamath water Water A federal judge says the irrigation plan for farmers doesn't help threatened fish Wednesday, October 19, 2005 MICHAEL MILSTEIN A federal appeals court on Tuesday threw out the Bush administration plan to deliver irrigation water to Klamath Basin farmers, saying it does not do enough for threatened coho salmon in the Klamath River. The ruling probably will mean more water must be shifted from farmers to fish in the basin's emotional tug of war over the precious resource. "This clearly could be a worse picture for us than what we had in...

    A judge has ruled that coho salmon have been illegally listed as an endangered species, a victory that comes too late for the farmers of the Klamath River Basin and the families of four young firefighters. In the spring of 2001, the government ordered irrigation water cut off to 1,400 farms in southern Oregon and northern California to save suckerfish and salmon... [snip] Last week, federal judge Michael Hogan agreed with the Pacific Legal Foundation that the government violated the ESA when it failed to include hatchery fish in its assessment of the coho’s status. ...the Klamath community was practically...

    Suckers hang around restored wetland Monday, November 8, 2004 1:34 PM PST By DYLAN DARLING MODOC POINT - Tiny juvenile suckers foraged this summer in a shallow bog that once served as a cow pasture beside Upper Klamath Lake. The appearance of the endangered fish was particularly rewarding for the Nature Conservancy, which bought the land and breached a dike to let lake water flow in and out of the parcel to create sucker habitat. "It is showing us that if we open up areas, they will use them," said John Crandall, the Klamath Basin fisheries ecologist for the Nature...

    Screens accomplish at least one big goalPublished November 7, 2004 The new $16 million fish screens at the headgates on the A Canal apparently have done a job. They had two jobs to do, actually, and while we don't know if they've done both of them, they've certainly done one. In building the fish screens, the federal government has eliminated a source of contention between irrigators on the Klamath Reclamation Project and the Klamath Tribes, to whom the suckers are an important part of their religion and culture, and, historically, as food. Two species of the sucker have come under...

    Legislators seek changes to Endangered Species Act KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. (AP) - A House subcommittee looking for ways to change the Endangered Species Act came to the Klamath Basin on Saturday, where irrigation water was cut off to 1,400 farms in 2001 to conserve water for threatened and endangered fish. "In 30 years, only seven species of 1,300 listed have been recovered, and those are mainly due to other conservation laws," said Rep. Ken Calvert, R-Calif., chairman of the House Resources Subcommittee on Water and Power. "At the same time, communities across the West are stopped cold in their tracks...

    Klamath water sketchy this year By John Driscoll The Times-Standard A National Research Council report on the Klamath River won't be ready until summer, and won't review two key studies related to the federal government's water policies. The council's report on the agency opinions that prompted the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation to cut water to farms in 2001 is about to be sent out for peer review. That means it will be June or July before it's released. It won't review an important flow study, or a planned U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service report on the causes behind a huge...
