Oregon Representative E. Werner Reschke Receives Funding for Klamath County Domestic Wells

Because of the drought, the people of Klamath County are unable to use their domestic wells, and Representative E. Werner Reschke was successful in his efforts to acquire emergency financing in the amount of 5 million dollars for these individuals. On Friday afternoon, the Oregon Emergency Board held a meeting in order to approve an emergency funding request that was expressly intended to assist residents in Klamath County. The request was granted with no dissenting voices.

I would want to express my gratitude to the members of the Emergency Board, the staff at the Department of Water Resources, Representatives Helm and Owens, and Klamath County Commissioner Minty for their assistance in facilitating the fulfillment of my request. It was a collective effort to ensure that residents of Klamath County can recover from the debilitating effects of the drought.

When the well that supplies your home runs dry, it may be a very unpleasant situation. When you turn on a faucet and no water comes out, you not only lose the capacity to drink water, but you also lose the ability to clean, cook, wash dishes and clothes, flush the toilet, and take showers.

The financial burden, as well as the uncertainty associated with not knowing how or when a good driller would be available, is further aggravated by the looming question of whether or not a good driller will locate water at a deeper level. The strain puts a significant mental and emotional burden on both individuals and their families.
