Solving the Klamath Crisis: Keeping Farms and Fish Alive takes an in-depth look at the role dams play in the decline of Klamath River salmon and rural communities. The fishing and farming communities of the Klamath Basin are stuck in a rotating crisis whereby one year fishing is restricted and the next irrigation is curtailed. The dam owner, PacifiCorp, has not been held accountable for their impacts to the river and the rural communities that depend on it -- until now.
With the relicensing of the Klamath dams, Klamath Basin communities have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to dramatically improve the health of the river by removing dams that have outlived their use. Solving the Klamath Crisis chronicles the struggle of Tribes, farmers, and fishermen who are tired of the endless court battles and rivalry, and are now working together on lasting solutions to resource issues in the Klamath Basin.
