The Santiam Water Control District (SWCD) received funding through a Bureau of Reclamation WaterSMART grant to develop and implement a Drought Contingency Plan for the North Santiam Watershed.
Grant funds are being used to contract with GSI Water Solutions and subcontractor David Evans and Associates to help develop this much needed plan.
A stakeholder task force has recently been formed to help develop the watershed scale drought plan.
