Judge Denies Ranchers' Bid on Upper Klamath Water

Posted By on Tue, Jul 16, 2013 at 3:50 PM

Ranchers facing water shut-offs in the Upper Klamath Basin lost a bid to keep their water rights intact while they appeal a state decision that granted Klamath Tribes senior water rights earlier this year.

Klamath Falls Judge Cameron Wogan declined to put the state’s recognition of tribal rights on hold, the Associated Press reports, because an appeal could take 10 years and would violate the “first come, first served” principle of Western water law.
