Watershed Analysis
Watershed
The Oregon Department of Forestry conducted watershed analysis projects in basins containing state forest land.  These projects evaluated the interactions between management and a watershed's physical and biological processes.
 
ODF watershed analyses were designed to be performed in several steps.
  • The analyst compiled available information to describe current watershed condition.
  • Based on this description, factors limiting important watershed functions were identifed and assessed.
  • The analysts and ODF resource specialists determined whether riparian and aquatic stratgies were addressing the appropriate process and function concerns within the watershed.
  • Information provided by watershed analyses was used to refine district implementation plans and, as necessary contribute to a comprehensive review of forest management plans goals and strategies.
 
Completed watershed analysis projects reports - with selected supporting materials - are posted on the Watershed Analysis Projects web page.
