Klamath report contradicts economic impact

Researchers from Oregon State University have released a report on the economic impact of the Klamath Basin controversy.

Contrary to the claims of non-Indian farmers on the California-Oregon border, the researchers said there was a loss of only about $1 million. The farmers said they would lose $250 million because they were denied water.

Secretary of Interior Gale Norton eventually restored water to the farmers, denying it for fish and tribes in the area.
