The Klamath Power and Facilities Agreement (KPFA) was also signed on April 6, 2016 by the states of Oregon and California, the Klamath Water Users Association, the U.S. Department of the Interior, and the U.S. Department of Commerce.

The Amended KHSA and the KPFA include commitments by the parties to engage in good faith efforts to develop and enter into a subsequent agreement or agreements pertaining to other water, fisheries, land, agriculture, refuge and economic sustainability issues in the Klamath Basin.

The Klamath Basin Restoration Agreement (KBRA) terminated on December 31, 2015 because the federal authorizing legislation was not enacted.

The Upper Klamath Basin Comprehensive Agreement (UKBCA) was terminated on December 28, 2017. The Upper Klamath Basin Comprehensive Agreement was premised in key part on federal funding being provided for certain actions under the Klamath Basin Restoration Agreement (KBRA).
