Watershed Resources Planning Team
Profile (by 8-digit Hydrologic Unit Subbasin):
The Natural Resources Conservation Service in Oregon has produced Subbasin
Profiles to provide a natural resource snapshot and overview of each Oregon
8-Digit Hydrologic Unit. The Subbasin Profiles organize into one document
information that local conservationists, landowners and others can use to:
identify conservation opportunities and direct technical and financial resources
to the appropriate subbasins. They provide a concise description of the
subbasinsí natural resources, resource concerns, conservation needs, and ability
to resolve natural resource issues. These profiles organize into one document
what most local conservationists and landowners already know about their
- Physical resources
- Landuse and land cover
- Common Resource Areas
- Soil, stream, precipitation data
- Resource Concerns
- Census and Social Data
- Progress/Status of Conservation by Land Use
Most of the data for the profiles were collected through the National Land
Cover Data Set, NRCS-National Resources Inventory, Census of Agriculture, and
numerous Oregon State Agencies. Local conservationists verified data.
The profiles organize into one document what most local conservationists and
landowners already know about their watersheds. The profiles can help
conservation leaders in Oregon identify conservation opportunities and direct
technical and financial resources to the appropriate subbasins.
Eleven profiles are complete and currently available. Over the course of the
year, the remaining eighty-one subbasin profiles in the state will be completed
and posted to Oregonís NRCS website.
If you have questions about the profiles, contact Oregonís NRCS Water Resources
Planning Team at 503-414-3202.
