Welcome to the Malheur Watershed Council website.


To lead the effort to conserve, protect and enhance all watershed resources for optimum economic and environmental benefits within the Malheur watershed. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAAccomplishments: Water quality monitoring on Malheur River and tributaries from 4/15/97 to the present. Our multitude of projects through the years in this rural area generally focus on agriculture-related practices. An example of our on-the-ground work is the piping of more than 17 miles of irrigation laterals that serve at least 64 farmers and more than 4,000 acres, saving an estimated 750-acre-feet of water per year, per mile. We have also improved irrigation practices on more than 800 acres. By doing so, an estimated 4,000 to 16,000 tons of soil have been prevented from leaving these fields in one year alone.
