Start Date: 3/8/2018 - End Date: 6/11/2018
The Klamath Tribes, the senior water right holder in the Klamath Basin, made a call on water on March 8 because water levels were low after an unusually dry winter. Stemming from the call, residents of Chiloquin were notified on June 11 that they may not use municipal water for anything other than human consumption.
