Abstract or Summary
  • The Myrtle 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 Myrtle 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 Myrtle Creek Watershed is 76,322 acres. There are no highways within the watershed, and the only population center is the City of Myrtle Creek. The most common land use in the Myrtle Creek Watershed is forestry, with over 79% of the land base used for public or private forestry. Agriculture constitutes 18%, and mostly occurs in valleys. Land ownership is primarily private (57%).
