Sherman County Area Watershed Council Mission Statement
The Sherman County Area Watershed Council strives to promote and protect the natural resources of not only Sherman County, but also all the areas included in our watershed drainages by including a broad and diverse representation of geographic and natural resource interests in the watershed and to work collaboratively with people, businesses, and communities to develop and carry out voluntary on the ground watershed restoration activities. This board of directors believes that cooperation between State of Oregon and Federal agencies, public interest groups, and land owners / operators is of the utmost importance in achieving the goals of the council. We will continue to work for not only better soil and water conservation practices, but also for a better understanding between all parties concerned with the protection of our natural resources.

The Lower John Day Working Group Place Based Planning group has drafted the Step 5 Report: Integrated Water Resource Plan
We are now in the public review phase of this effort and are asking the community to give us their thoughts and comments on the draft report. This is a locally led, voluntary, and non-regulatory water resource planning effort. Become a part of the process and have your voice heard by providing your input.
