The Oregon Water Resources Department and a panel of water stakeholders will discuss Klamath Basin adjudication and the implications of adjudication decisions during the first Klamath Conversations on Jan. 19, a series of talks held by PROSPER.
“The purpose of the evening is to educate,” organizers said in a press release. “In that spirit we’ll encourage panelists to stick to the facts of their position so other land owners are aware that there is more than one approach to managing the process and outcomes of adjudication, while still respecting Oregon law.”
At the first talk, “Klamath Adjudication: What does it mean and what happens now?” at 6:30 p.m. in the Mt. Mazama Room in OIT’s college union, representatives from the Oregon Water Resources Department will give a half hour presentation on the basics of Oregon’s adjudication process and Klamath Basin adjudication.
Then a panel of stakeholders — representatives from the Klamath Tribes, Upper Klamath Water Users Association, Klamath Water Users Association, and the Upper Basin contestants — will talk 10 minutes each about their perspective on the process, followed by a question-and-answer period with the audience.
PROSPER, a partnership that aims to promote economic prosperity through sustainable use of natural resources in the Klamath Basin, offered the same monthly series last year.
This year, its partners include Shaw Historical Library, the Klamath County Chamber of Commerce, Klamath Water Users Association, Upper Klamath Water Users Association, and the Klamath Tribes, according to a press release.
