This is a DEMONSTRATION application initiated by Klamath County, Oregon, with the express purpose of applying and evaluating new and emerging technologies in an effort to share information pertaining to water supply, natural resource and social and economic issues associated with water and resources management in the Klamath Basin. The vision is a common base of information to guide discussion, debate and resolution of the complex economic, social, and resource management issues within the Basin. The development of this demonstration application is guided by a formal document which identifies various future tools and applications.

Welcome to Klamath Basin
Decision Support System (DSS)
The Klamath Basin Decision Support System (DSS) is the vision of the
Klamath County Board of Commissioners,
a vision which quite simply, is to allow a broad and diverse audience access to a common
base of resource data for the Klamath Basin. The belief and hope is that by providing
timely access to a common base of resource data, including information related to water
supply and use, future conflicts surrounding water and resource management can be minimized
and the social and economic turmoil associated with water management decisions reduced.
An ancillary benefit of this project is to save people and organizations time in accessing
and making timely decisions by providing seamless data in one portal.
The Klamath County Board of Commissioners initiated the development of this DSS as a
pilot project in the fall of 2009, to demonstrate the concept of how resource data and
information can be shared using current technologies. Development of the DSS is guided
by a formal document
which identifies various future
tools and applications. The hope is that this pilot project will stimulate the development
and funding of future applications focused on the Klamath Basin by other resource agencies
in cooperation with the County, using the frame work established by this effort.
