As drought conditions persist throughout the region, the Klamath Basin’s fragile ecosystem will depend on collaborative partnerships among a wide variety of stakeholders and the development of holistic solutions.  The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law’s once-in-a-generation funding will help rebuild communities by investing in the ecological infrastructure of the Klamath Basin while saving cherished fish and wildlife from further decline. 

In an effort to continue to protect federally Endangered Species Act listed fish in the Klamath Basin, $30 million is being invested to support the Klamath Falls National Fish Hatchery’s expansion. This investment will increase rearing capacity for two federally Endangered Species Act listed fish -- the Lost River and shortnose suckers (c’waam and koptu) -- found only in the Klamath Basin.
