  1. Household Water Demand and Land Use Context: A Multilevel Approach

    Urban water use arises from a mix of scale-dependent biophysical and socioeconomic factors. In Portland, Oregon, single-family residential water use exhibits a tightly coupled relationship with summertime...

  2. Statistical Analysis of Stormwater Device Testing Protocols in Portland, Oregon

    Stormwater treatment is commonly performed with a combination of approaches including the utilization of natural systems and engineered devices. Before using a proprietary treatment instrument it is required to...

  3. Stressors and Strategies for Managing Urban Water Scarcity: Perspectives from the Field

    Largely because water resource planning in the U.S. has been separated from land-use planning, opportunities for explicitly linking planning policies to water availability remain unexamined. The pressing need...

  4. Urban and Rural-residential Land Uses: Their Role in Watershed Health and the Rehabilitation of Oregon’s Wild Salmonids

    This technical report by the Independent Multidisciplinary Science Team (IMST) is a comprehensive review of how human activities in urban and rural-residential areas can alter aquatic ecosystems and resulting...

  5. Interview with Jim Labbe, Portland Audubon Society, 2011

    Interview of Jim Labbe by Tony Smith on March 11th, 2011.

  6. Effects of Beaver Dams on Surface Water Flow During Storm Events in an Urban Landscape

    Urban land-use generally alters the hydrologic cycle, leading to changes in the natural flow regime of local streams. Runoff from impervious surfaces and routing of stormwater to streams causes urban streams to...

  7. Relationships Between Environmental Governance and Water Quality in a Growing Metropolitan Area of the Pacific Northwest,...

    We investigate relationships between environmental governance and water quality in two adjacent growing metropolitan areas in the western US. While the Portland, Oregon and Vancouver, Washington metro areas...

  8. Modeling Fecal Bacteria in Oregon Coastal Streams Using Spatially Explicit Watershed Characteristics

    Pathogens, such as Escherichia coli and fecal coliforms, are causing the majority of water quality impairments in U.S., making up ~87% of this grouping's violations. Predicting and characterizing source,...

  9. Use of Distance Weighted Metrics to Investigate Landscape-Stream Temperature Relationships Across Different Temporal Scales

    Stream ecosystems have experienced significant negative impacts from land use, resource exploitation, and urban development. Statistical models allow researchers to explore the relationships between these...

  10. Assessing Hydrologic and Water Quality Sensitivities to Precipitation Changes, Urban Growth and Land Management Using SWAT

    Precipitation changes and urban growth are two factors altering the state of water quality. Changes in precipitation will alter the amount and timing of flows, and the corresponding sediment and nutrient...
