The reproduction of the Klamath basin : struggle for water in a changing landscape

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The Klamath River flows through southern Oregon and northern California, from the Upper K. Basin to the Lower K. Basin. The A. shows how the livelihoods in these two sub-basins have competed for water resources to produce a Klamath Basin that is markedly different from the way when the land was surveyed in the mid-1800s. The K.B. has been further produced through reallocation of lands from native peoples to settlers, and subsequent labor unrest by migrant farm labor. The livelihoods continue to compete over water. The allocation of water to UKB crops led to lower water levels in the river that decimated the LKB salmon run. Dams have disassociated the livelihoods of peoples between the LKB and UKB
