The introduction provides a general description of the watershed in terms of its natural and human-made features, ownership and current land uses, and the communities within the watershed. Information in sections 1.2 and 1.3 was compiled from the Oregon Watershed Assessment Manual (Watershed Professionals Network, 1999), the Lower Cow Creek Watershed Analysis (USDI Bureau of Land Management, 2002), and the Lower South Umpqua Watershed Analysis (USDI Bureau of Land Management, 2000). Additional information is from the following sources’ databases: The Oregon Climate Service, the US Census Bureau, and the Douglas County Assessor.

Abstract
  • The Lower Cow Creek Watershed assessment has two goals: 1) To describe the past, present, and potential future conditions that affect water quality and fish habitat within the Lower Cow Creek 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 Lower Cow Creek Watershed is 102,537 acres. Riddle is the only incorporated city within the watershed. The most common land use in the Lower Cow Creek Watershed is forestry, with 91% of the land base used for public or private forestry. Agriculture constitutes 6% of the land use, and mostly occurs around Riddle. Land ownership is primarily private (60%).
