Abstract or Summary
  • In recent years, low lake levels at Fern Ridge, Oregon have become a major concern for recreationists in the southern Willamette Valley. A filled reservoir is necessary for the most popular water sport at Fern Ridge: sailing. The Army Corps of Engineers manages Fern Ridge as part of the Willamette River Basin Reservoir System and has attempted to meet recreation demands for better lake conditions. The Corps is limited, however, by its responsibility to give priority to other authorized purposes. Recreation at Fern Ridge is in conflict with other reservoir uses but is also very important to the local public. The issues at Fern Ridge are representative of similar federal reservoir management conflicts and changing water use priorities throughout the United States. Currently, the Corps is conducting a basinwide study to determine what changes can be made to reflect the changing priorities for water-related goods and services in the Willamette Reservoir System. This paper will discuss how the Corps has attempted to face the conflicts stemming from changing water use priorities and how the management of Fern Ridge is representative of other multiple purpose federal projects in the United States.
