The Greater Oregon City Watershed Council (GOCWC) is a non-regulatory, non-governmental group consisting of a balance of watershed interests.  As such, it seeks information, makes recommendations, and provides advice concerning the natural resources of the watershed and its restoration.


The organizations and interests represented on the Council are not obligated to adopt or carry out the recommendations proposed by the GOCWC, but are encouraged to give due consideration to all advice.  These organizations and interests should report back to the Council on any actions taken in response to the Council's recommendations.  The Council welcomes and will respond to requests for advice on actions affecting the watershed. Contact the council or find us on Facebook.


Council members will inform organizations about the works of the Council and will bring their organization's recommendations to the Council.
