From The Sacramento Bee, in a commentary by Curtis Knight and Glen Spain:
“Today’s working watersheds provide drinking water, produce hydropower, grow food, provide recreational opportunities and support valuable fisheries for commercial, sport and tribal interests. Saving these working watersheds can no longer mean rewinding them back to some pristine, romantic past. We must instead craft comprehensive and durable water management solutions for the modern world.
“This type of integrated thinking is being put to work in the Klamath River Basin, straddling the California-Oregon border. … Although the Klamath Settlement Agreements have been in place since 2010, they cannot be fully implemented without congressional approval.”
