Oregon-Farm-BureauFarmers excluded from dam removal plan

Statement from Oregon Farm Bureau

April 7, 2016 statement from Oregon Farm Bureau President Barry Bushue on the dam removal plan: “Despite asking the Governor’s office to be involved in the dam removal discussions, Farm Bureau was excluded. It’s not clear if there were any representatives from the agriculture community at the table. The crux of the issue is water certainty for farmers in the Klamath basin. A long-term reliable water supply for farmers should be the primary consideration of any agreement regarding the Klamath River basin, not just an afterthought as it seems to be in this plan.”
