Abstract or Summary
  • The South Umpqua River Watershed assessment has two goals: 1) To describe the past, present, and potential future conditions that affect water quality and fish habitat within the South Umpqua River Watershed; and 2) To provide a research-based action plan that suggests voluntary activities to improve fish habitat and water quality within the watershed. The South Umpqua River Watershed is 141,575 acres. The City of Canyonville is the only incorporated city within the watershed; other population centers are Days Creek and Milo. The most common land use in the South Umpqua River Watershed is forestry, with 89% of the land base used for public or private forestry. Agriculture constitutes 9% of the land use, and mostly occurs in and around the South Umpqua River and Days Creek floodplains. Land ownership is primarily private (55%).
