1 INTRODUCTION The Lower Coast Fork of the Willamette River is the southern-most part of the Willamette. Much of the land is used for agriculture. Damming the river has changed the river. Habitats have changed and flow volume has decreased. Watershed Location The Lower Coast of the Willamette is located in central Lane County. Statewide, it located roughly in the middle part of the Willamette Valley. Figures: 1. Map of Oregon with watershed location General Geology The bedrock of the watershed mostly consists of recent alluvium (Qal) and rocks from the Fisher or Eugene Formation (Tfe). Other types of bedrock include basaltic rock (Tfeb), sedimentary and volcaniclastic rocks (Tus), and Marine Eugene Formation (Tfee). Figures 2. Geologic Map 3. Soil Map Hydrologic Summary The Lower Coast Fork of the Willamette River contains a total drainage area of 360 sq km. It has a total length of 22.8 km and a total width of 22.5 km. The watershed includes 13 subbasins, which have an average area of 27 sq km stream segments and tributaries are included in the watershed, 632 are first order stream segments and 323 are second order stream segments. Figures 9. Watershed outlines and stream overlays Conclusions (1)The Lower Coast of the Willamette is located in central Lane County. (2)It contains a total drainage area of 360 sq km. (3)The majority of the watershed gets inches per year. (4)The vegetation in this area is mostly agricultural. Other common vegetation types include Douglas Fir, White Oak Forests, and Regenerating Young Forests. (5)It has an elevation range of 110 ft at the northern end to 1125 ft in the southeast. (6)The bedrock of the watershed mostly consists of recent alluvium (Qal) and rocks from the Fisher or Eugene Formation (Tfe). Other types of bedrock include basaltic rock (Tfeb), sedimentary and volcaniclastic rocks (Tus), and Marine Eugene Formation (Tfee).
