Clear & Foster Assessments

Clear and Foster Watershed Assessment

In 2002, Watershed Professionals Network (WPN) prepared this assessment under contract with the Clackamas River Basin Council. Funding for this assessment was provided by Water Providers- Clackamas River Water, Oak Lodge Water District, South Fork Water Board and Sunrise Water Authority, the BLM, the Cities of Estacada, Lake Oswego and Milwaukie, PGE and a grant from the Oregon Watershed Enhancement Board.

The Clackamas River Basin Council chose to conduct this watershed assessment for several reasons: 1) to better understand the dynamics of Clear and Foster Creeks 2) to develop partnerships with the community, 3) to be a catalyst for the enhancement and protection of fish and wildlife habitat in particular for Wild late-run Coho, Fall Chinook and Winter Steelhead 4) to identify actions to improve water quality for drinking water, recreation and fish and wildlife.
