Water delivery start date not expected at BOR meeting Tuesday

Herald and News March 16, 2018

What: Bureau of Reclamation's Klamath Basin Area Office water update

Where: Exhibit Hall No. 2, Klamath County Fairgrounds 3531 S. Sixth St., Klamath Falls

When: 1 p.m. Tuesday

Bureau of Reclamation’s Klamath Basin Area Office will hold a meeting updating Project irrigators on the status of the water year at 1 p.m. Tuesday at the Klamath County Fairgrounds.

Bureau spokesperson Laura Williams said, due to an evolving water year, she doesn’t anticipate Bureau staff being able to release a start date for irrigation, however.

“It’s just keeping everybody up to speed and up to date with as much information as we can pass on to people,” Williams said. “There’ll be opportunity for questions and answers again.”

The meeting is open to the public.

About 180 people attended a meeting hosted by the BOR last week, with many airing frustrations over concerns related to the drought.

Alan Mikkelsen, senior advisor to the Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke, will not be at the Bureau’s Tuesday meeting but will be present for a release of 2-year-old suckers into Upper Klamath Lake, Williams confirmed.
