The thirteen federal reservoirs in the middle and upper Willamette Basin were authorized for construction beginning in the late s. The combined storage capacity is more than million acre-feet. The projects provide important Upper Willamette Basin hydrological station summary of flood control, generation of electricity and water.

The USGS has collected and compiled groundwater data for the Willamette River Basin, Oregon. This research includes data for 1, field located water wells and 6 springs, hydrographs of water-level fluctuations during various time periods for wells, borehole geophysical data for 16 wells, and water-chemistry analyses from wells and 6 springs.

Irrigation is the largest use of ground water, accounting foracre feet of withdrawals, or 81 percent of annual ground-water withdrawals.

Most withdrawals for irrigation occur from March to October and are largely from the upper and middle sedimentary unit in the central Willamette and southern Willamette Basins.

The Luckiamute Basin is bounded by the Willamette River to the east, the crest of the Coast Range to the west, Green Mountain and Marys River to the south, and the Rickreall Creek Watershed to the north.

6 Ground-Water Hydrology of the Willamette Basin, Oregon. Hydrogeologic Framework The Willamette Basin is a topographic and structural trough that lies between the Coast Range and the Cascade Range (fig. The basin lowland is divided into five sedi-mentary subbasins that are separated by local uplands of the Columbia River Basalt Group lavas.

The Willamette Basin is Oregon's largest river basin. It contains nearly 70 percent of Oregon’s population, its most highly productive agricultural land, and significant habitat for anadromous fish populations.

The Willamette River and its tributaries make it possible to support today's population and generate hydropower. The vast majority of. The Willamette River Basin Planning Atlas offers a valuable resource for anyone interested in the region's past, present, and future. Using a dazzling variety of color maps, charts, and photographs, the Atlas presents a vast amount of information intended to provide a long-term, large-scale view of changes in human and natural systems within.

The first edition of this book was published by Prentice Hall in It has been widely recognized as one of the finest books in the field of unsaturated zone hydrology for upper division and graduate level courses, as well as ‘the’ reference book for professionals.

The book was so popular it sold out of print within five years.
