Owaso Bridge to Greenway Bridge

June 9, 2005

On a warm sunny morning especially welcome after days of cloudiness and rain, five of us learned a lot about the watershed and rivers from Jody Lemmer of the East Lane Count Soil and Water Conservation District and a little bit about the work she does preserving the watershed by working with private landowners in agricultural areas.

The effect of the dams and reservoirs we have constructed over the years has been dramatic as far as flood control is concerned but also through channelization and damming we have significantly altered the free flow of the Willamette and other streams. We can help preservation efforts by ensuring that we don’t let chemicals, detergents, and fuels enter the watershed.

Participants were: Jean Coberly, Margot Fetz (leader), Joanne Gulsvig, Dorthy Quirk and Ginny Reich.
