Abstract

This report presents a framework for regional water-quality monitoring in the middle and upper Deschutes River Basin, Oregon, that would be coordinated among organizations doing related monitoring. The emphasis is on maximizing the value of existing programs and resources by minimizing overlapping sampling efforts, filling key data gaps, increasing communication about results, and facilitating coordination and cooperation among organizations. The report was developed in conjunction with the Upper Deschutes Watershed Council and a committee of representatives from each of the organizations listed in the Acknowledgments (hereafter referred to as the Upper Deschutes Water Quality Monitoring Committee, or "the Committee" ). This group helped to (1) determine the water-quality issues to be addressed, (2) provide information on current programs in the basin, (3) develop the overall monitoring objectives, and (4) reach agreement on the general monitoring framework
