Restoration goals intend to create ways for farmers to have viable operations, while lessening their impacts on fish, wildlife, and water quality and quantity. A variety of programs and technical support opportunities are available for landowners who would like to improve the organic content of the soils, convert to dryland or reduced irrigation farming, improve the efficiency of their irrigation system, or experiment with holistic grazing management techniques.

Sustainable agriculture depends on affordable power as well as predictable levels of water supply.  Unlike most other Bureau of Reclamation projects, the Klamath Reclamation Project does not have a source of federal power.  Past contractual arrangements provided lower cost power On- and Off the Klamath Project area, but those agreements have expired.  Replacing those arrangements with new means to provide affordable power is critical to the economic sustainability of both the On-Project irrigators and the Off-Project irrigators.  Benefits to landowners include more efficient irrigation methods, predictable water supplies, and lower power rates.  The ecosystem benefits through the same predictable water supply availability.
