Drought is no stranger to the Klamath Basin. But twenty years ago, following a century and a half of control by settlers, it began tearing at the fabric of the watershed. Farmers saw their water supply cut off for the first time since the Klamath Project’s inception. Young fish perished up and down the watershed. Migrating birds’ ancestral rest stops reduced to mud puddles. Indigenous people saw themselves vilified for seeking the protection of natural and cultural resources promised to them by treaties.
