The declaration allows state agencies to coordinate and prioritize assistance to the region. Brown said in a news release the Klamath Basin faces one of the most difficult water years in recent memory.
"Moving forward, we must look for long-term solutions to the underlying issue in Klamath and many other Oregon counties: there is too little water to go around. After last year's wildfire season, we are closely monitoring drought conditions in the Klamath Basin and statewide."
