Security System in Place at Klamath Water Project

January 01, 2002|From Times Wire Reports

A new security fence, video cameras and motion detectors are taking the place of federal police guarding the headgates of the Klamath Reclamation Project irrigation system in Klamath Falls.

The $90,000 security system was completed around the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation structure that became the center of protests last summer over restricting irrigation water to farms to conserve water for threatened and endangered fish, spokesman Dave Jones said.

The security system went up after protesters met with authorities the day after the Sept. 11 attacks and said they would pull out to allow the federal government to concentrate on fighting terrorism.
