Watershed management -- Oregon, Oregon Plan for Salmon and Watersheds




The Oregon Coastal Salmon Restoration Initiative (OCSRI) (1197) is the first of several documents that have come to be known as the Oregon Plan for Salmon and watersheds (OPSW). The OCSRI indicates that protection and restoration of salmonid stocks and improvement in water quality are the main roles for state agencies within the Oregon Plan (EO09-01: 1(b)). The Oregon Plan specifies particular actions that state agencies must take to aid in salmon recovery and also directs the Governors Watershed Enhancement Board (GWEB) to help create and organize watershed councils responsible for assessing conditions and determining priorities for watershed health. A watershed analysis protocol is currently being developed by ODF to study the effects of forestry operations on ODF lands.

This project is designed to assist in implementing the ODF watershed analysis process. The specific objectives of the project are to:

  • Identify and map all fifth-field watersheds with ODF ownership;
  • Determine what data/information ODF needs for each watershed;
  • Obtain completed or in-progress assessment work for each watershed;
  • Identify or suggest best method of obtaining data;
  • Create organization system for information relating to each watershed; and
  • Suggest method to prioritize watershed analysis work order.
