Our Klamath Basin Water Crisis
Upholding rural Americans' rights to grow food,
own property, and caretake our wildlife and natural resources.
for the Bureau of Reclamation. We would
like answers to share with our readers:
* Where is the Bureau with the reconsultation process that was said to occur in 2006 regarding the biological opinion?
* What is the latest update on the Barnes Ranch acquisition/purchase?
* Did leasing of Barnes property by the Bureau provide any water savings/storage for irrigators?
There have been questions by our agriculture communities regarding the Chadwick process:
* Is the Chadwick consensus process replacing the CIP process that many community members and organizations gave input into?
* If the CIP process is going to resume, when will it begin? Draft 2 was in February 2004.
* Chadwick has many committees, including power rate committee, dam removal, tribal trust, water demand reduction, returning the forests to the tribes, etc. If a person, lets say a farmer, does not drive to Yreka or Scott Valley or wherever to participate in the 3-day meetings, how will he/she have a voice in your consensus decisions?
