“While there has not been a confirmation that any fish have died as a result of Ich, we are extremely concerned that there could be another fish kill in the coming weeks if additional flows are not released. We appreciate that the Bureau of Reclamation heeded our request to send emergency flows down the Klamath River,” said Thomas P. O’Rourke Sr., Chair of the Yurok Tribe.

Mike Orcutt, Hoopa Valley Tribe Fisheries Director, said, "Hopefully, logic will prevail as the Judge has the same issue that he will be issuing a ruling on from last year's case." "A New TRO (Temporary Restraining Order) would only be issued if plaintiff can show 'irreparable' harm from BOR's action and they are already getting maximum deliveries from Trinity anyway. Moreover, BOR has already established its water deliveries so they won't be harmed by reductions in their water deliveries....

Whatever PR and debate surrounds production of oil from the Monterey Shale Formation, in no way affects non-associated - Northern California Tight Gas production, North Coast Tight Sands (tight gas) exploration and production targets i.e., the Eel River Basin in Humboldt County, or the lust for new offshore leases on the North Coast of oil, natural gas and methane hydrates.

Chairwoman Vigil-Masten also mentioned the lack of water in the Klamath and Trinity rivers having a profound impact on tribal members, especially during a time when there are no jobs, a lack of industry and a lack of financial resources. “But, the people taking the water are doing quite well,” said Vigil-Masten. “To me, it’s really frustrating to that millions of dollars are being made on the backs of our salmon and our drinking water.”

“It is as if the Secretary of Transportation said let’s forget about automobile seat belts, airbags and antilock brakes and spend the savings on ambulances,” said Hoopa Valley Tribe Chair Danielle Vigil Masten. “The problem is that the ambulance may or may not get to a crash scene in time, and when it does arrive, the crew will have to deal with far more serious injuries.” Photo of the Trinity River courtesy of the Hoopa Valley Tribe.
