Abstract
  • By the early 1990s, the citizens of Tillamook County recognized that environmental problems facing Tillamook Bay threatened the very future of those residing here. Declining fish runs meant loss of income for commercial fishermen, tackle shops, hotel owners, and other fishing - dependent businesses. Decreasing water quality meant violations of federal clean water standards, and frequent closures of commercial shellfish beds. Sediment deposition, combined with changes in water flow and drainage patterns in the lower rivers and upper bay, increased the magnitude and frequency of flood events . For these and other reasons, concerned citizens, with the help of the State of Oregon and the Governor, nominated Tillamook Bay to the National Estuary Program in 1992. The EPA approved the nomination, and the Tillamook Bay National Estuary Project (TBNEP) was established in 1994. Since then, the TBNEP staff has worked with local, state, and federal agencies, as well as citizens, educators, and industry to develop the Tillamook Bay Comprehensive Conservation and Management Plan (CCMP). All those involved have shown dedication and perseverance to work through differences and achieve consensus. It has been challenging, to say the least. As difficult as it has been so far, the hard part is only just beginning. Forming the plan was the "easy" part. Carrying out that plan is the real challenge, and we must remain dedicated to see it through. This document summarizes the CCMP, and provides information on the factors affecting Tillamook Bay and its watershed. We invite you to join us as we embark on the mission to Restore the Balance.
