Demonstration Project

This is a DEMONSTRATION application initiated by Klamath County, Oregon, with the express purpose of applying and evaluating new and emerging technologies in an effort to share information pertaining to water supply, natural resource and social and economic issues associated with water and resources management in the Klamath Basin. The vision is a common base of information to guide discussion, debate and resolution of the complex economic, social, and resource management issues within the Basin. The development of this demonstration application is guided by a formal document which identifies various future tools and applications. Those interested in participating may contact the Klamath County Public Works Department (lhickey @ co.klamath.or.us).

Klamath Basin DSS

Welcome to the Klamath Basin
Watershed Project Viewer

The genesis for the Watershed Project Viewer is a general belief, among resource managers, that few living outside of the Klamath Basin realize the progress that is being made to restore the natural resources and conserve water within the Basin. Many different organizations, ranging from the individual landowner to the farmer-irrigator, to watershed councils, and local, state and federal government agencies, are actively involved in restoration activities in the Klamath Basin. No single source or location integrating basic information about these restoration efforts is available, which tends to hamper a coordinated restoration effort.

A "use case" is simply a written description of a concept application. The Functional Requirements Document for this DSS included several use cases and one of those focused on the development of a "restoration analysis" tool, of which the Watershed Project Viewer is an example. In the spring of 2009, Klamath County staff, with US Forest Service support, submitted a Secure Rural Schools Title II grant proposal to the Fremont-Winema Resource Advisory Committee (RAC). The RAC and the Forest Service agreed to fund the development of the Watershed Project Viewer by awarding a grant to Klamath County in the fall of 2009.

The Watershed Project Viewer includes two basic components. The first component is a web enabled database of restoration activities. The intent is not to duplicate the efforts of agencies like the Oregon Watershed Enhancement Board, but to supplement those efforts by integrating restoration information not previously available to the general public and decision makers. The second component consists of various data and applications intended to aid with the development and evaluation of new restoration activities in the Klamath Basin.
