Klamath Basin Water Adjudication

The Klamath Basin Adjudication is the legal process in which water rights which vested before adoption of Oregon's water code in 1909 are established through a proceeding in the Klamath County Circuit Court. The Oregon Water Resources Department managed the initial phases of this process and issued a Final Order of Determination on March 7, 2013. The Circuit Court is responsible for resolution of exceptions and issuance of the water right decree.
