JPR: Hoopa Valley Tribe calls water release a drop in bucket

Jefferson Public Radio reports on a water release in the Klamath Basin:
Regina Chichizola of the Hoopa Valley Tribe says the extra water would help but would only be a drop in the bucket.

Chichizola: “Putting enough water down the Klamath to make sure we have a healthy run of fish that can support the tribes and the coastal community is not a priority in the Klamath River right now.”

The Bureau of Reclamation proposes to release the water in August and September during the height of the salmon run, with public comments taken through the end of July.
