Land Use Effects on Water Quality in the Tillamook Bay Watershed.

Comprehensive Conservation and Management Plan is a plan to address the environmental problems that have developed in the Tillamook Bay and its watershed during the past century The plan was produced by the Tillamook Bay National Estuary Project Management Committee.

Flood events in the area wreak havoc on local communities, the economy, and the watershed ecosystem. Solution Develop and implement a plan to reduce flooding and the adverse impacts of flooding while incorporating environmental, social, and economic values in the development of short- and long-term solutions.

The lower valleys of the Wilson, Trask, and Tillamook rivers merge to form a broad floodplain at the head of the bay on which the City of Tillamook is located.

US EPA initiated a study in the Tillamook estuary and watershed focused on the impact of changes in watershed land use, ocean conditions, and weather on estuarine water quality and ecosystem goods and services production within the estuary.

This project is a collaboration between Tillamook Estuaries Partnership, US EPA Reg USGS-Menlo Park, Oregon Department of Environmental. Our environmental and social hypotheses are knit is such a way that we will learn what residents of the five river basins think of the environmental quality in the basin in which they live.

We will assess the Tillamook Bay sediment budget and examine how this budget compares with the sedimentation history of the Bay.
