What is a watershed, and where can I find one?


watershed health graphicTomorrow is the launch of the new Portland Watershed Report Cards. 

What’s a watershed, you say?

Check out this great video, What is a Watershed


Although the video is not from Portland, everyone in Portland does live in a watershed. Rain that falls in Portland flows to local streams, like Johnson Creek, Fanno Creek, or the Columbia Slough. 

Stay tuned tomorrow for the new Report Cards about the conditions in our watersheds, and new ways to explore Environmental Services’ projects and programs for clean rivers and healthy watersheds.
