KWAPA would like to thank everyone for their efforts in helping to bridge supply and demand in 2013, a year that could have looked much different without it.  Thanks to the individual irrigators who did everything they could to conserve, to Klamath Water Users Association for their work in securing a new Biological Opinion that provides a known amount of surface water earlier in the season, to Oregon and California Dept. of Water Resources for their flexibility with our groundwater pumping program, and to the Bureau of Reclamation for working so closely with KWAPA all year long and providing funding for the WUMP programs. There are many others that helped to align supply and demand as well.   KWAPA Board and Staff are grateful to you all.
