The Water Report’s August 2018 issue includes an article by attorney Rich Deitchman titled “Oregon’s Klamath Basin Adjudication: The First Five Years of the Circuit Court Phase.” The comprehensive, ten-page article covers the first half decade of the judicial phase of Oregon’s Klamath Basin Adjudication.
