Klamath Basin Agreements

Status of the Klamath Basin Agreements:

The Klamath Basin Restoration Agreement (KBRA) terminated on December 31, 2015 because the federal authorizing legislation was not enacted.

The Klamath Hydroelectric Settlement Agreement (KHSA) and Upper Klamath Basin Comprehensive Agreement (UKBCA) are still in effect, they did not terminate with the KBRA, but they also require federal authorization legislation and their implementation is interdependent with the now-terminated KBRA. The KHSA and UKBCA provide processes for amendment or termination. Any amendments or other formal actions will be posted on this website.

The parties to the Klamath Basin Agreements will be consulting to determine the next steps they will take.
