Our Klamath Basin Water Crisis
Upholding rural Americans' rights to grow food,
own property, and caretake our wildlife and natural resources.
Klamath water user group makes deceitful claims
The Klamath Water Users Association leaders’ claim of PacificCorp’s “private property rights” to demolish Klamath River Hydropower Dams is deceitful.
PacificCorp didn’t propose demolishing them. It was forced into this by California bureaucrats who won’t issue clean water permits.
The KWUA board knows these dams don’t harm water quality.
In its publication, “Water Quarterly” (Vol. 1 Issue 3), it voices concerns over the water quality standards that could be forced upon Basin farmers because “Concerns remain about attainability given natural conditions.”
The water is
“naturally” impure from the source so it’s impossible for the
dams to purify it.
