Tools for Public Involvement
- The Clean Water Act
- The basis of the CWA was enacted in 1948 and was called the Federal Water Pollution Control Act, but the Act was significantly reorganized and expanded in 1972. "Clean Water Act" became the Act's common name with amendments in 1977. The goal of the Clean Water Act is to restore and maintain the chemical, physical and biological integrity of the nation’s waters.
- Pollution Report
- If you identify pollution or a water quality concern on the river or its tributaries, please call the Oregon Emergency Response System (OERS) at (800) 452-0311. OERS will be able to get agency response on weekends or off hours, unlike calling their offices. Next, please call us at (541) 488-9831.
