Willamette Basin mapThe Bureau of Reclamation’s Pacific Northwest Region will partner with the Oregon Water Resources Department to develop a “Plan of Study” for the Willamette River Basin Study aimed at finding collaborative solutions to future water needs in Oregon.
The basin study is jointly funded by the state and supported under Reclamation’s WaterSMART Basin Study program. For the plan of study, OWRD and Reclamation will equally share $50,000 toward the $100,000 study effort.
The Willamette River Basin supports approximately 75 percent of Oregon’s population and is the fastest growing area in the state. The WRB is about 180 miles long and 100 miles wide and encompasses 11,478 square miles - including 2,950,997 acres in Lane County.
