The Sandy River Basin Watershed Council joins Clackamas County Emergency Management, the Villages of Mt. Hood, Hoodland Fire District, and local river geomorphology experts to provide resources to upper watershed residents regarding flood risks on the Sandy River.
Through the Flood of Information event on October 24th, residents were able to obtain information on localized projects that serve their communities, including the Lolo Pass Road Alternatives Study and the Sandy River Erosion Study. SRBWC will be releasing our Restorative Flood Response Handbook this winter, which will act as a guide to local communities to understand the history of river formation, risks associated with living on the river, and how residents can work together to create habitat-friendly flood risk management plans. The Watershed Council will be creating a new webpage to outline the full spectrum of resources available to landowners once the Handbook is released.
