Willamette River Report Card released
The Willamette River Report Card
was released on Wednesday December 2, after a 1.5 year project involving the Willamette River Initiative
at Meyer Memorial Trust
and many partner organizations in the region. The project began with workshops in Corvallis and Eugene, OR, designed to illustrate the main features, processes, and pressures that affect the river and assign indicators to evaluate the rivers condition in the Upper, Middle, and Lower Willamette River segments. The Willamette scored a B- on the report card, based on indicators evaluating Water Quality, Fish and Wildlife, Habitat, Water Flow, and People and the River. The report card is accompanied by a detailed document
that fully describes the process, indicators, and data analysis that were used in the report card process.
