Water Resources Research Institute Records, 1965-1991

Scope and Content Note

The Water Resources Research Institute Records document research projects supported by the Institute. The records include publications of research results in reports and circulars, research project files, and administrative records. The research project files include agreements, budgetary materials, correspondence, grant proposals, meeting minutes, and research data. The administrative records consist primarily of annual program reports submitted to the U.S. Department of Interior. A variety of water resources research topics are represented in the collection, including geothermal activities in Oregon, restoration of Sturgeon Lake, the effects of Mount St. Helens eruptions in the 1980s on regional watersheds, motorboat-induced stream bank erosion, inter-basin water transfers, and the impact of low-head hydro-electrical dams on Willamette River fish.

An addition to the Water Resources Research Institute Records (Accession 2014:011) is made up of two reports generated by the Water Resources Research Institute (WRRI) and a report on water quality control in Oregon by the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality. The WRRI reports are "Surface Eroded Non- Point Source Pollutants Entering Selected Upper Willamette River Tributaries from Agricultural Lands" and "The Chemical and Biological Impact of Klamath Marsh on the Williamson River."
