In the perfect, most beautiful setting, can exist only the most amazing agriculture community. What started out as a desire to protect the irrigated lands of the Klamath Project, has turned into a mission of preserving and enhancing the viability of the project for current and future generations of farmers. We take great pride in serving our membership.
The Klamath Water Users Association (KWUA) is a non-profit private corporation that has represented Klamath Reclamation Project farmers and ranchers in its current form since 1953. However, the roots of the organization date back to the beginning of the Klamath Reclamation Project in 1905. KWUA members include rural and suburban irrigation districts, other public agencies and private individuals who operate on both sides of the California-Oregon border. These entities and individuals typically hold water delivery contracts with the United States Bureau of Reclamation. The Klamath Project is home to over 1,200 family farms and ranches and encompasses over 170,000 acres of some of the best farmland in the West.
KWUA would like to thank these sponsors for their continued support. Without their support, KWUA would not be able to give the community members the valuable opportunities to see how agriculture impacts our local and regional economies and communities.
KWUA keeps a pulse on many important issues facing small family to commercial sized farms and ranches. KWUA takes pride in being able to submit comments and letters on these important subjects so that our members can focus on their business and not the legal issues.
As a small, local, non-profit business we hold monthly board meetings so that our members may gather information to rely to their respective districts. These meeting vary monthly based on projected attendance. If you're interested in attending a meeting or would like to speak at a meeting; please contact a board member or call the office for more information.
