Abstract

The Lower Alsea River Watershed Analysis contains information which characterizes the processes and trends for resources of concern, and provides a context relating the function of this lower portion of the watershed to the Alsea River Basin as a whole. Critical problem areas both inside and outside federal lands are highlighted, though the focus is on the uplands, with limited projection on the estuary, lowlands, private lands, and state facilities. By analyzing limiting factors and understanding likely rates of recovery, the analysis helps to strategize and prioritize activities both spatially and by project type. This first iteration provides useful information about resource conditions for USFS, BLM, and other agency managers as well as watershed councils and private individuals.
