The Governor\'s Natural Resources Office and state agencies are working to learn more about Oregon\'s water infrastructure needs. Meta Loftsgaarden has been touring the state for Community Conversations in which community leaders and decision-makers have discussed the draft 100-Year Water Vision. This webinar is a great opportunity for those of you who missed the Conversations to get an update on the Vision! Meta briefly presented the draft plan, answered excellent questions from the audience, and described how stakeholders like the watershed councils, land trusts, and SWCDs on the call could have a voice in the Vision.
September 19, 2019 - "Using Drones and Low Elevation Remote Sensing Technology to Measure Changes in the Environment"
Drones or unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) are increasingly
being used to record images before and after restoration actions are
implemented across our watersheds. This technology offers the potential to
monitor impacts associated with restoration actions that are more
efficient when compared to ground based methods. Yet, the learning curve
is steep to apply this technology and create a useful product in a timely
manner. Three speakers will provide a short presentation that describes
their approach to using this technology to answer their monitoring
questions and describe challenges, lessons learned and recommendations. A
question and answer session will follow the three presentations.
- Ken Fetcho, OWEB Effectiveness Monitoring Coordinator
- Herb Winters, Gilliam SWCD District Manager
- Lauren Burns, Columbia River Inter-Tribal Fish Commission Fishery Biologist
- Matt Barker, OSU Forest Engineering, Resources, and Management Graduate Student

August 15, 2019 - "401 Water Quality Certifications for Restoration"
401 Water Quality Certification is one part of the permitting process for projects that require in-water work. Restoration work often requires this kind certification prior to construction. In-water work includes dam removals, stream relocations, and placing materials in streams and/or wetlands. This webinar will discuss when a 401 WQC is required, and why certification is important in Oregon. We will discuss steps to certification, including fees and land use requirements.
Presented by Sara Christensen, the statewide 401 water quality certification coordinator for the Oregon DEQ.
