Consumptive use of surface water by Willamette Basin municipalities by Richard Lee Mittelstadt Download PDF EPUB FB2
However, because a large portion of urban water in the basin comes from outside sources (primarily the Bull Run watershed), and because most water is used indoors and returns to the surface water sources from where it originated, the urban consumptive use of in-basin surface water is a small fraction (only 7%) of total urban water use.
Ground-water discharge to smaller streams, which flow on the less permeable Willamette silt unit, is small and mostly from the Willamette silt unit. Most ground-water withdrawals occur within the lowland. Irrigation is the largest use of ground water, accounting foracre feet of withdrawals, or 81 percent of annual ground-water withdrawals.
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.

As Willamette Envision runs, the estimated water demand is met by diversions of water from surface and groundwater sources, consistent with existing municipal water rights. WW water demand modeling suggest an increase in urban water use within the basin over the century, mainly due to population growth.
The burgeoning population of the Willamette River Basin is putting unprecedented demands on the water resources of the region.
Because surface-water resources are largely allocated, ground-water resources are being increasingly looked upon to meet the growing demand. To help protect, improve and enhance the quality of Oregon waterways, DEQ conducts in-depth assessments of the state’s basins.
These assessments take the form of local water quality status and action plans, which describe water quality conditions and include recommendations for actions that DEQ and others who are interested in these basins can take to improve water.

The study, continued under the Federal Water Pollution Con- trol Administration, has included considerable emphasis on the Willamette Basin, since it contains the clearest and most significant instances of water pollution found in the Columbia Basin.

The Willamette Basin is one of the 18 major river drainage basins in the state. The Groundwater use in the Willamette Basin is discussed in more detail below. Water right information can be accessed through the OWRD.
Consumptive use at the Columbia Basin Project is about 70 percent of the volume of surface water withdrawals (Montgomery Water Group, ; see also Appendix C). This 70 percent figure was assumed to apply to other areas of irrigated agriculture along the Columbia River mainstem (keeping in mind as well that the Columbia Basin Project.
The average water use is about m.g.d. and the maximum use m.g.d. Industrial Water Supply--' In addition to the large amounts of water used, by indust- ries supplied through, municipal sources, there are known to exist in the basin 63 separate industrial water supplies.

Most of the water taken from wells or streams is used, treated, and put back into streams and rivers. Overall - after exports - about 4% doesn't get returned and is identified as "consumptive use." ♦ Learn more about basin water use ♦ Learn more about consumptive use (pdf MB; TREB Ch.

This document provides an overview of the estimated water budget in the Willamette River basin, including an infographic showing magnitudes of water use by type.
The largest consumptive use in the system is evapotranspiration. Municipal, industrial, and agriculture use is both consumptive and non-consumptive, and represent relatively small uses.
The South Basin is contaminated near the surface with volatile organic compounds (VOCs) left behind from decades-old manufacturing. In this area, the geology is different and the migration rates of the pollutants are a little slower than in the North Basin. One water supply well has been removed from service because contaminants reached elevated levels.

Agriculture is the most variable category year to year. Water Supply Bulletin 12 () describes a study of the water resources for the Nooksack River basin.
This bulletin is meant to serve as a guide, assisting municipalities, industry, and other public and private agencies by studying the geology, stream flows, groundwater levels, and determining the total water budget for the basin relative to.

Existing law, the Municipal Water District Law ofprovides for the formation of municipal water districts and grants to those districts’ specified powers. Existing law permits a district to acquire, control, distribute, store, spread, sink, treat, purify, recycle, recapture, and salvage any water for the beneficial use of the district.
PATTERNS OF WATER RESOURCE DECISION-MAKING: MINIMUM STREAM FLOWS IN THE WILLAMETTE BASIN ABSTRACT: Oregon's minimum stream flow program is intended to pro-tect certain instream flow values by maintaining sufficient stream flows to support aquatic life and to minimize pollution.

Here, the lower Clackamas River is wider, flowing past volcanic buttes in the lower basin before meeting the Willamette River south of Portland.
Water quality in the Clackamas River is considered very good to excellent compared to other rivers in the State and has withstood pressures from human impacts and natural disturbances seemingly well. The purpose of this case study is to examine the effects of changing the surface water quality standards (Chapter A Washington Administrative Code) from the current “class-based” system to a “use-based” system within the Columbia Basin Project (Project) area.
