Oregon’s rivers may run dry again this summer, but you can still saturate yourself with information about your favorite Beaver State stream. That’s because WaterWatch of Oregon has restructured its Web site to serve as a clearinghouse on state rivers.
WaterWatch of Oregon, a nonprofit
conservation group founded in 1985, is dedicated to restoring and
protecting the state’s rivers. Links on their revamped site
point to watershed histories of the Klamath, Deschutes and Rogue
rivers, highlighting threats to the systems and offering solutions.
In the case of the Deschutes, WaterWatch outlines the unique
geology of the basin, the problems associated with too little water
and too many users and the benefit of returning flows to the river.
The site also lets visitors know what they can do to affect change
within each river basin. For more information, visit
