    The burgeoning population of the Willamette River Basin is putting unprecedented demands on the water resources of the region. Because surface-water resources are largely allocated, ground-water resources are being increasingly looked upon to meet the growing demand. The Willamette Basin encompasses a drainage of 12, square miles and is home to approximately 70 percent of Oregon’s population. Agriculture and population are concentrated in the lowland, a broad, relatively flat area between the Coast and Cascade Ranges. Annual rainfall is high, with about 80 percent of precipitation falling from October.

Willamette Basin Conservation Project Final Report, August Project Summary The Willamette Basin Conservation Project (the Project) was created to help people and programs work together toward positive results in Oregon’s Willamette Basin for people, lands, communities, waters and native species.

The Willamette River Basin Project is comprised of 13 dams and reservoirs in the Willamette River drainage system, which begins south of Cottage Grove, Ore., and extends north to the Columbia River.

The operation of each dam contributes to an overall water resource plan designed to preserve the quality of the valley's environment by providing flood damage.
