The authors gratefully acknowledge the support of the residents of the upper Klamath Basin, particularly the many hundreds of individuals who allowed access to property and wells for water-level measurements and monitoring over the course of several years. Our understanding of the ground-water hydrology of the upper Klamath Basin benefited tremendously from many hours of discussions with land owners and scientists working in the basin, who freely shared observations, insights, and valuable data. Particular thanks go to Noel Eaves and Bill Ehorn of the California Department of Water Resources; Jon Hicks, John Rasmussen, and Tom Perry of the Bureau of Reclamation; Jerry Grondin and Ned Gates of the Oregon Water Resources Department; Tim Mayer of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service; Mike Stansbury of Water and Energy Services (WESCORP); Steve Luxton of W&H Pacific; Toni Boyd and John Lund of the Oregon Institute of Technology Geo-Heat Center; and the staffs of the Klamath National Wildlife Refuges Complex and Lava Beds National Monument. Our understanding of the geology of the region benefited from discussions with Mike Cummings of Portland State University, Frank Hladky, Margi Jenks, and Ian Madin of the Oregon Department of Geology and Mineral Industries, and Dave Sherrod of the U.S. Geological Survey. Part of the Oregon Water Resources Department contribution to this project was funded through grant assistance from the Bureau of Reclamation Klamath Basin Area Office.
