Our Work: In Progress

The Deschutes River Alliance is now working collaboratively with agencies and others to develop and fund a comprehensive research plan that will be launched in 2014 - our high priority work will be to:
  • Conduct an expansive research program that evaluates temperature, water chemistry, insect, and algae populations throughout the lower 100 miles of the Deschutes River. This work will build a broad baseline of river health and help determine if the lower river is imminently at risk.

  • Water quality and biological sampling will take place at the mouth of every tributary to the lower 100 miles of the Deschutes River. This work will help identify sources of risk to water quality and biologic health.

  • Aerial mapping of algae and thermal profile will be conducted. This detailed profile will identify the extent of health and / or risk.

  • Work collaboratively with ODFW staff to survey and evaluate red band trout populations, work not conducted since 2000.
