Like many areas in the western U.S., the serious water allocation issues the Klamath Basin faces are coupled with water quality issues, as well as intensified by the presence of endangered species. The Klamath Basin Rangeland Trust is addressing these issues by working with agricultural landowners to undertake habitat restoration projects.
Restoration projects include wetlands and stream restoration, anadromous fish passage, riparian and riverine habitats, reconnecting spring sites, and grassland and pasture health.
Improvements enhance water quality and relieve stress on native fish and wildlife populations.
