Our Klamath Basin Water Crisis
Upholding rural Americans' rights to grow food,
own property, and caretake our wildlife and natural resources.
KBRA has always been a fraud

It looks like the Klamath Basin Restoration Agreement is falling apart, which it should!
The County of Siskiyou was never allowed to be included as a “stakeholder” and, yet, 3 of the 4 dams tagged for destruction were located in Siskiyou.
We were over-ridden and ignored, but have become an outspoken advocate for saving the Klamath dams, because the dams will preserve water quality, wildlife, fish and the communities of Siskiyou County.
Lies, deceit and fraud were rampant by the Greenie groups, Tribal leaders, federal and state agencies. I am a witness to it. I have reported on this outrageous situation since the fraudulent listing of the coho salmon in the Northern California area ONLY by both the feds in 1996 and California Dept. of Fish and Game in 2002.
Destroying the dams will kill at least three years of returning salmon runs — as admitted by Dept. of Fish and Game on April 1, 2010 at a meeting in Yreka, CA. How will that save the salmon?
The Irongate Dam Fish Gatchery, destined for demolition, also grows millions of salmon and steelhead for release each year. How will that improve fish populations if the fish hatchery is gone?
With no dams for flood or drought control, how will fish and wildlife have sufficient water as the Klamath is not a year-round natural high-flow river?
The KBRA was a political hot potato created to destroy salmon runs, wildlife, water quality and the economy of Siskiyou County.
I am certainly looking forward to the continued demise of the KBRA.
