Projections of a near record-breaking run of adult fall Chinook salmon to the Klamath River Basin have prompted requests to supplement flows to the Lower Klamath River between August 15 and September 21. Reclamation estimates up to 92,000 acre-feet of water could be used to supplement flows in the Lower Klamath River. Of this total, approximately 48,000 acre-feet could be used as a precautionary increase in flows to the Lower Klamath River, and up to 44,000 acre-feet could be used if an emergency situation were to occur. Any use of the emergency water would be informed by real-time environmental and biological monitoring by federal, state and tribal biologists.
