To meet the requirements of the Rogue Basin 2008 TMDL under the Clean Water Act, local municipalities and irrigation districts are implementing a variety of management strategies to improve water quality by reducing or eliminating temperature and bacteria inputs to local water ways including the Rogue River. The strategies are being implemented over a five-year period and vary by jurisdiction or entity and include riparian restoration to improve stream shade, water quality monitoring, management of urban runoff, education and outreach, ordinances, on the ground projects and control structures, erosion prevention and sediment control, and staff training.
July 1, 2012 marks the beginning of Year 3 of the Implementation Plans.
