For well info, you can search the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality website, which has all modern well logs (and some older ones) on line:
Well Log Query

You'll need to know Township, Range and lot numbers (should be right on your property assessment and deeds). Wells will vary with terrain and geology, so what someone right next to you ha may or may not be indicative of where you'll find water.

For the County Planning Dept (building permits, etc)
Klamath County Community Development - Building Division

The County's not too bad, and they are pretty quick about getting permits turned and inspections done. They do follow current Building Codes, though.

People laugh at the thought of gangs in a place like Klamath, or any part of Oregon for that matter. I used to stay there on business at least 2 nights a week for about 3 years not that long ago. Even though it may not be noticeble to the untrained eye, I guarantee MS-13 and other gangs have outposts there. They dont have a street presence like most people think of when they think of gangs. Their existence usually serves as a stopover point for drug transport and human traffiking operations between California and Canada or Washington within their own ranks. While most of this activity occurs along the I-5 corridor, some travels through Klamath Falls.

My husband is a builder - we're your neighbors on Bly Mtn. (at the nursery). Stop by for a visit sometime. We'll welcome you to the community with a cup of coffee, share any information we can, and help as needed. Feel free to write offline if you want. WELCOME NEIGHBOR!

Default your question on klamath falls

People believe what you want about klamath.
I've lived there my whole life and seen and heard some of the most ****ed up things.
The crime here is rediculous. They don't post any of it in the news or newspapers. Klamath has the highest rate of dope in the US. I've seen and heard some of the most twisted ****ed up stuff. And I've been a lot of places. You wonder why you see so many police officers around? We have 3 times the amount we are supposed to because of the crime and drug trafficing going thrue klamath. 4 riot/shootouts took place in klamath, including the countless murder,s

None of the "facts" in this post are true. Klamath Falls does not have the "highest rate of dope" in the US, not even close, at least not according to DEA stats. We have a (well) below-average per capita number of police and sheriff officers. The murder rate per capita is below the US average.

Like a lot of rural, high unemployment rate areas, KFalls does have a meth and alcohol problem, but not any different than other areas the same size in Oregon or even in the Northwest.

Ok what about the bodies found in klamath lake? The Nuns raped and killed on the bike path, and the people stabbed and killed there. And the shoot outs baecause of dope deals gone wrong? My friend got shot in the face, her husband was murdered, and her baby was right there, my friend was shot and killed because of drug deals. Another kid was killed found in a ditch. You know why? Because of bad drug deals, meth is used like ****ing candy in this tow, you aren't aware cuz you sit home with your head upp your ass looking at sites like these all day. Don't tell me my statements are untrue when I was around that my whole life. Behind the scenes of klamath falls. Our **** ws tested 70% emphetamine when they testedour septivg

You're going back almost 20 years to draw up examples. And most examples you list were reported in the papers, investigated and prosecuted - out in the open, not something hidden. No one ever said that Klamath Falls was crime free. No one ever said that it was meth free. No one ever said that it was gang free. What HAS been said is that it isn't any worse than any other comparable small town in Oregon. Your perception may be otherwise, but it doesn't hold up.

Klamath sheriff:
Uniform Crime Reports of Klamath County and Index from 1985 to 2005

City of Klamath Falls:
Uniform Crime Reports of Klamath Fall and Index from 1985 to 2005

For comparison:
Jackson County
Uniform Crime Reports of Jackson County and Index from 1985 to 2005

City of Medford
