["The federal government is not supplying enough water to the Klamath River to sustain the dwindling coho salmon, a court ruled in a victory for conservationists and fishing interests in southern Oregon and northwestern California.... The Bureau of Reclamation's irrigation plan from 2002 to 2010 will provide the coho with only 57 percent of the water it needs -- based on the government's figures -- and fails to explain how the species will survive.... The court told a federal judge in Oakland to order the government to take immediate steps to preserve the coho, which was declared a threatened species in 1997."
