Deschutes Advisory Group

Ecology formed an advisory group of interested businesses, environmental groups, governments, and local citizens who want to work towards improving the health of this watershed. The Deschutes Advisory Group advises us on two water cleanup plans (known as a Total Maximum Daily Loads or TMDLs) for the Deschutes watershed:

  1. The Deschutes River, Percival Creek, and other tributaries TMDL was completed in 2015, and the advisory group is helping with implementation of the plan.
  2. The group is also providing input on the on-going Budd Inlet TMDL.
