In conjunction with the Oregon Department of Agriculture, the Upper Willamette SWCD office serves as the Local Management Agency for the Agricultural Water Quality Area Management Plan. These plans are developed by agricultural representatives to demonstrate how agriculture is addressing water quality concerns that arise from agricultural activities conducted on their land. These plans are the agricultural sector’s response to the Clean Water Act. District staff provide landowners technical assistance and administrative support to the two local advisory committees designated in the District’s boundaries.
If you are interested in more information about implementing projects, project funding opportunities or addressing resource concerns for your property, please contact the District staff.
