Feds Consider Klamath Basin Complaint

US Fish & Wildlife

The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation and the Klamath Water and Power Authority (KWAPA) join forces on a number of water projects.  Now ​the federal agency that evaluates whistleblower complaints says there's cause to investigate how KWAPA spent tens of millions in federal funding.  

  Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility--PEER--announced that a whistleblower says money meant for fish conservation went to irrigators instead, and millions may have been wasted. 

 The whistleblower, Keith Schultz, and PEER Senior Counsel Paul Dinerstein join us.
