It's a constant struggle to figure out who will get water in the upper Klamath Basin when not much falls from the sky.  It is a matter of continuing tension between tribes, conservationists, and water users. 

The Klamath Water Users Association finds itself in the middle of many debates over water allocations.  And its executive director, Scott White, recently resigned from the post.  JPR's April Ehrlich sat down with White for a recent interview to explore the stress of the water fight.

John Baxter's history at JPR reaches back three decades.  John was the JPR program director who was the architect of "the split" when JPR grew from a single program stream to three separate streams. We coaxed him out of retirement and he's now a co-producer of the Jefferson Exchange.
