Section 7. Abstract


The Middle Deschutes Watershed Coordinator will cover watersheds in Jefferson County. Our watersheds are located in the Deschutes Basin of Central Oregon. At this time we have two active Watershed Councils, Trout Creek & Willow Creek. The Coordinator will develop working relationship with the “Friends of the Metolius”, who are an active group addressing concerns in the Metolius watershed. All results from coordinated projects will be shared and evaluated for use in other projects in the watersheds. Willow Creek watershed covers approximately 117,000 acres The primary use is agriculture, approximately 30% is forested. The Willow Creek watershed Council was formed in Early Spring of 1997 and formally recognized by Jefferson County Commissioners in May of 1997. The Council is made up of local landowners and land managers who have concerns in Willow Creek watershed. They meet regularly are in the process of developing an assessment of needs funded by GWEB. The Council is also in the process of developing Goals, Objectives and priority Lists. The Watershed Coordinator is assisting Willow Creek Council with the development of Action Plans and a Work Plan. There are twelve landowner/landmanagers in Willow Creek willing to participate in coordinated efforts of making Willow Creek a fully functioning watershed. Trout Creek watershed covers approximately 285,000 acres. It is partially located in three counties, Jefferson (145,460), Wasco ( 108,383) and Crook (31,357). Willow Creek consist primarily of rangeland and forest. Trout Creek Council meets monthly and is being assisted by the watershed Coordinator to develop Goals, Objectives, Priority Lists, Action Plans and a Work Plan. Trout Creek was funded by GWEB ($20,000) for an assessment of needs and concerns, it was published in 1996. In Sept. 1997, Bureau of Reclamation funded ($10,000) for an on-site evaluation of Trout Creek and this document is forth coming. Trout Creek has twenty landowner/landmanagers who are willing to cooperate to see Trout Creek is restored to a viable watershed. Willow Creek & Trout Creek Watershed Councils are actively seeking funding for on-the-ground projects in both watersheds. Jefferson Co. SWCD will be the fiscal agent for the Coordinator and all related cost for the Councils. The Coordinator was hired by JCSWCD in Sept. 1997 and has been working part-time and when funding is available will be utilizing more hours to assist Watershed Councils in developing Action Plans & Work Plans. The Coordinator will work with ODFW and other interested agencies to coordinate projects, so duplication will not occur and all projects will provide a continuity of restoration and enhancement projects.
