Working Together
One of the best things about Oregon’s approach to watersheds is that it brings people together. Bridges are built between people and groups that might not normally cross paths. The results are healthier watersheds, mutual respect and a better future for the next generations of Oregonians.  As Oregonians take care of watersheds, we are also building stronger communities.

Local Projects
The following is an example of Oregonians working together for healthy watersheds funded by OWEB.
Deschutes Special Investment Partnership
A dedicated group of local organizations responded to the challenge and opportunity to support the reintroduction of salmon and steelhead above the Pelton-Round Butte Dam complex in the Deschutes Basin.  The group presented a coordinated approach to OWEB that prioritized projects in logical sequence and that leveraged significant matching contributions from other sources.  The Deschutes Special Investment Partnership was funded by OWEB in 2008. The partners have made great strides in accomplishing their objectives in just two years (more).

OWEB Investment Tracker
The OWEB Investment Tracker is a new tool that allows you to explore how OWEB grant funding is distributed across the state.  The tool provides basic information on grants in progress and those that have been completed (e.g. project name, start year, OWEB funding amount).  The Tracker tool lets you view OWEB grant information on a map by watershed, grant type, county, or year.  You can also type in your address to view the projects funded in your neighborhood.  The Oregon Watershed Restoration Tool provides more detailed information on completed restoration projects.
