Abstract: This document is the Sandy River Basin Watershed Council’s Phase 1 Watershed Assessment for the Sandy River Basin Watershed. Report organization is based on the assessment topics found in the Governor’s Watershed Enhancement Board (GWEB) draft Oregon Watershed Assessment and Aquatic Resources Manual (January 1999) with additional topic areas identified by the Council. This report provides the technical background used in developing a basin-wide Phase 1 Action Plan. This companion document identifies Council goals, priority actions, and additional study needs aimed to contribute to and support the long-term integrity of watershed functions, and historic and cultural resource preservation in the basin. The assessment includes information on the Lower Sandy River Watershed, Bull Run/Little Sandy Watershed, Sandy River Watershed, Salmon River Watershed, and Zig Zag River Watershed. For these areas, the following topics are covered: Existing Data Sources, General Characteristics, Channel Habitat Types and Description, Hydrology and Water Use, Precipitation, Surface Water, Groundwater, Water Use and Availability, Channel Modifications, Riparian/Wetland Conditions, Sediment Sources, Water Quality, and Fish and Fish Habitat. The assessment also includes topics such as the general setting of the Sandy River Basin, and Historical conditions.
Purpose: This report provides an initial scoping-level assessment of the natural and historical conditions in the basin, based upon existing information and data, as well as identifies problem areas and data gaps.
