Well, it looks like the Karuk Tribe and Klamath River Keepers are at it again.
Late last week while the areas food producers were preparing for the 2012-farming season, the Karuk Tribe, in coordination with the Klamath River Keepers, went public with an extremely biased and highly controversial groundwater model of the Scott River aquifer.
The model, which the Karuk Tribal Council says is to be used as a tool to help identify restoration methods in Scott Valley, was swiftly put together to precede the Scott Valley Groundwater Study Plan that has been developed by Dr. Thomas Harter, a groundwater specialist from the University of California Davis, and supported by the Scott Valley community.
Though the Karuk Tribal Council claims to be in support of agriculture in Siskiyou County, donít be fooled. Their six-month groundwater study is another example of the Karuk Tribesí attempt to usurp property rights and resources in this area through lawsuits and one-sided environmental agreements.
