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 www.waterwatch.org.
