Abstract or Summary
  • Oregon water temperature standards were described by former Oregon Governor John Kitzhaber’s Office as “an important component of the water quality element of the Oregon Plan [for Salmon and Watersheds]”. In 1998, Governor Kitzhaber’s Office and the Oregon Legislature asked the Independent Multidisciplinary Science Team (IMST) to examine and review the scientific basis of Oregon’s water quality standards for temperature. This report was prepared to address this specific request and to address some of the major concerns about stream temperature that have arisen in Oregon. To accomplish this goal, IMST discusses the answers to science questions that the IMST deemed to be relevant to this charge and important to accomplishing the goals of the Oregon Plan for Salmon and Watersheds. The IMST’s primary focus was “non-point” sources of elevated temperature in streams and cumulative sources from across Oregon’s landscape. While this request was initiated based on concerns surrounding the 1996 temperature standards, the discussions in this report are completely applicable to the recently adopted 2003 temperature standards.
