Questioning Klamath Water Allocations

The ongoing efforts to distribute water in drought years always cause concern for someone. 

We recently visited with the Klamath Water and Power Authority about its program to pay some landowners to pump groundwater rather than irrigate. 

Some observers are less interested in the details than in the fact that it happens at all. 

Klamath River observer and critic Felice Pace certainly has some questions. 

He visits to air his concerns about the fish-vs-farms situation in the valley of the Klamath, from mountains to ocean.
