KLAMATH DROUGHT
Upper Klamath Basin rancher Becky Hyde stands in a pasture on her ranch in Chiloquin, Ore., on Thursday, June 13, 2013 after state watermasters told her she had to turn off irrigation. The Oregon Water Resorces has been telling rahcers like Hyde they must shut off irrigation to leave water in the Sprague River to satisfy senior water rights recognized last March for the Klamath Tribes, which are demanding the water be kept in the river to help endangered sucker fish. A judge on Friday, June 14, 2013, denied motions to halt the water shutoffs while an appeal of the water rights legal process is considered in court. (AP Photo/Herald and News, Steve Silton)
