The Pure Water Partners (PWP) Program is a new initiative designed to reward McKenzie landowners who protect high quality land along the river, assisting EWEB in protecting water quality and helping to avoid future water treatment costs.Landowners may receive annual payments, technical assistance or other incentives to participate in PWP.  The program also provides assistance to landowners who wish to engage in restoration projects on their land.

Our Role:

  •  Provide the assessment and/or monitoring of participating landowner properties within the boundary.

  • Work with EWEB and other Partners to establish and evaluate program eligibility and maintain positive relationships with the landowners after signing agreements.

  • UWSWCD staff play a critical role in testing the field methods, gathering and analyzing on-the-ground field data, writing the landowner riparian assessment reports and management plans. 


As a conservation district, UWSWCD is a 170(c)1 Organization and can accept tax deductible donations to assist in conservation efforts, education outreach, riparian restoration, improving crop land and restoring wildlife habitat.

Donations of cash, checks or money orders are always accepted and greatly appreciated to help us succeed with our goals.


Checks can be made payable to UWSWCD and mailed to our office, or through PayPal.
