Water Quality

The Clackamas River Basin Council and our partners in the Clackamas Technical Working Group have compiled several different resources to provide information to individuals interested in the quality of the water in the Clackamas Watershed, which provides drinking water for nearly 400,000 individuals.  We all have a role to play in keeping our water clean, and it's easy to make a positive impact.  

Resources include:

  • What You Can Do, and Why It Matters.  Cost-effective, easily implemented tips are featured on this page.  We've also included links to partner agencies that can help answer any questions you may have.
  • Resources for Residents.  Do you have a question about anything water-related?  Check out this page, and we'll direct you to a professional that can help find an answer.
  • Technical Data.  This database listing combines technical reports, water quality databases, and other resources that provide a detailed look at water quality in the Clackamas watershed, and beyond.
  • Partners.   Partnering with others in the Technical Working Group helps to make everyone more efficient, effective, and informed.  Learn more about each organization here.
