The Steering Committee

    The Partnership for Coastal Watersheds (PCW) is led by the Partnership Steering Committee, a diverse assemblage of community members representing local interests, and facilitated by staff at the South Slough National Estuarine Research Reserve and the Coos Watershed Association. The full Steering Committee is broken into subcommittees that meet regularly to oversee different aspects of the project.

Watershed Assessments

A watershed assessment is a document describing conditions in the watershed. It summarizes and displays monitoring data, and may lead to a management plan to address undesirable conditions. The State of the South Slough and Coastal Frontal Watershed focuses on those named regions and was a pilot for the more expansive Coos Estuary Inventory Project.

Action Plan

The Action Plan describes steps that can be taken to help the community address issues that need to be resolved for the community to reach its vision of what local social, economic and environmental conditions should look like in 20-25 years. The Partnership for Coastal Watersheds is currently facilitating the implementation of the highest priority actions highlighted in the Action Plan.

Coos Estuary Monitoring Tools

Exciting new ways to monitor our bay include four new water quality monitoring stations in the upper reaches of the bay (added to three stations already being managed by the Coquille Indian Tribe and the Confederated Tribes of Coos, Lower Umpqua, and Siuslaw Indians), a hydrodynamic model of the Coos estuary, and an indicators program.
