Stakeholder groups meet in Yreka
Klamath Falls Herald and News April 2, 2008
Several groups that support the Klamath Basin Restoration Agreement, including the Klamath Tribes, Karuk and Yurok tribes and Klamath Water Users Association, met in Yreka Tuesday night as part of ongoing efforts to work together.
Karuk spokesman Craig Tucker said the session was intended to urge groups to “continue working together to solve common problems.”
Water Users executive director Greg Addington said the gathering was planned before Siskiyou County supervisors announced they would vote on the settlement.
“It wasn’t meant as a response. We wanted to get together and get some of our board members with tribal members from different tribes,” Addington said.
“We’re here to eat some salmon, Klamath potatoes, elk and eel.”
