Watershed Process and Functionsantiam river
Natural watersheds have rivers and streams with cool clean water, pools, riffles, meanders, and the room to spread during high water events. They are home to a mix of native plants and provide good habitat for wildlife. In many parts of Oregon, these natural functions and process have been eliminated, altered or reduced.
