Klamath Basin water allocation cut to zero

Due to extreme drought, the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation¬†announced¬†May 12 it will reduce the Klamath Irrigation Project’s already minuscule initial allocation of 33,000 acre-feet to zero. The project’s “A” canal, which normally carries water to some 200,000 acres of farms in Southern Oregon and Northern California, will remain closed for the 2021 season.
