Burnt River Water Temperature Study Steering Committee Final Report
Over the last several years, the Bureau of Reclamation has been participating with 15 state and Federal agencies and organizations in a water quality study of the Burnt River subbasin in eastern Oregon.
The goals of the study were to provide a broadly-acceptable scientific basis for developing and evaluating alternative approaches to dealing with water temperature concerns, and exploring how these approaches might be applied in a pilot basin. The Burnt River Water Temperature Study Steering Committee Final Report describes the work done by the study’s steering committee to address the four study objectives:
- Assess factors that contribute to stream temperatures
- Evaluate management practices that might reduce stream temperatures
- Develop and test a surrogate for temperature goals
- Use study results as a basis for development of a 1010 plan by the Oregon Department of Agriculture
