Irrigation backers rally in Klamath Falls

Posted 7/1/2013

KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. (AP) — Ranchers from the upper Klamath Basin and their supporters are rallying Monday to call attention to the impact of an irrigation shut-off.

The Klamath Falls Herald and News reported (http://bit.ly/14luJJA ) they planned to drive pickup trucks and other agricultural vehicles from the fairgrounds to the Klamath County Government Center downtown.

Each location features a giant bucket erected after a drought led to irrigation restrictions in 2001, and many of the protesters called themselves the Bucket Brigade. Drought this year has again led to the curtailing of some irrigation in the basin.

One of the rally organizers, Eric Duarte of Beatty, says the point is to show what he calls “awareness in Klamath Basin about the only industry we have left.”
