Description
Abstract: The Dalles Watershed Assessment generally follows the format and protocols described in the Oregon Watershed Assessment Manual, developed by Watershed Professionals Network for what is now the Oregon Watershed Enhancement Board (OWEB). The assessment contains sections on: description of the Dalles Watershed, climate, history, channel habitat type classification, hydrology and water use, riparian and wetlands conditions, sediment sources, channel modification, water quality, fish and fish habitat, and watershed condition evaluation.
Purpose: A watershed assessment can help to identify how the processes of the watershed are functioning. The assessment can be used to identify and prioritize issues that need to be addressed and point out areas that are doing well and need no intervention. The process of creating the assessment should involve landowners and other stakeholders in the watershed so that the goals and processes are understood and the finished product is utilized. This can help to catalyze projects by community-based groups or provide additional data for an established organization. Some of the issues that might become community concerns include fish habitat, water quality, land management practices, and development impacts.
