About the Deschutes River Alliance

Our Mission:

The Deschutes River Alliance is a science-based advocacy organization seeking collaborative solutions to basin-wide threats to the health of the Deschutes River and its tributaries. We advocate for water quality, a healthy ecosystem, and for the establishment and protection of robust populations of resident and anadromous fish throughout the river’s entire watershed.

How We Execute Our Mission

On the Lower Deschutes River, hatch timing has been altered and several aquatic insect populations appear to be in decline. Upon initial investigation, these changes may be due to the recent appearance of a new algae proliferation, not previously documented in the river. The algae are responding, based on expert opinion, to a change in water quality. The DRA is aggressively and diligently working to determine the nature and extent of the water quality changes as well as the extent of the algae growth and its consequences.
