Permanent Water
Transfer Program

KBRT’s  permanent transfer program is a final step in the progression of helping landowners use water more efficiently in their ranching operations. Once a landowner is confident in their water conservation measures, the conserved water is permanently dedicated to instream flow, and the landowner is often eligible for compensation for the transfer of those water rights. The value of the water is determined by a water appraisal process.

The ultimate goal of this program is to benefit our water users and the unique ecology of the Klamath Basin by improving the quality and quantity of water in perpetuity for future generations.
