SALEM, OR -- Governor Kate Brown wants the state to join litigation that could limit local irrigation in an effort to protect the spotted frog. WaterWatch of Oregon is suing several irrigation districts, claiming they are taking too long to put more water back into local rivers to help the endangered frog. Click HERE to read more about the lawsuit.

 

Governor Brown says the Deschutes Basin litigation is a major conflict over water resources that requires a solution developed collaboratively, recognizing multiple important interests. She says Oregon needs to be at the table to help craft a path forward for the health of the state's fish and wildlife, and the economic vitality of local communities.

 

WaterWatch claims operations at the Crane Prairie, Wickiup and Crescent Lake dams and reservoirs on the Upper Deschutes River harm the protected frogs.
