Upcoming Webinars

Oregon Conservation Partnership Webinar Series

Lending to Landowners Using the Clean Water State Revolving Fund

Thursday, Nov 1, 10 a.m. – 11 a.m.

Join us to hear about an innovative way Clackamas SWCD is using the State Revolving Fund to make loans for landowners for conservation.

Oregon DEQ implements the Clean Water State Revolving Fund (SRF), a low-interest loan program available to public agencies for wastewater utilities, stormwater and nonpoint source water improvements.

The Local Community Loans program provides eligible borrowers low-cost financing to support nonpoint source projects that prevent or mitigate water pollution. Clackamas SWCD has used the program to make loans to private landowners for water quality/water conservation projects. 

Presenters: Roxann Nayar, Integrated Water Resource Specialist, DEQ and Eann Rains, Conservation Investments Coordinator, Clackamas SWCD

2018 Tidegate Update and Discussion

Thursday, November 15, 10 a.m. – 11 a.m.

Presenter:  Mel Dunne, Exec. Director of Coquille Watershed Association and the Network of Oregon Watershed Councils representative on the Tidegate Steering Committee.

Description: Over the past year, there has been growing momentum among several organizations and individuals known collectively as the Tidegate Partnership (for information on the mission/goals of this working group please go to www.oregontidegates.org ). Representatives from watershed councils, SWCDs, and land trusts have been attending and participating in meetings throughout 2018. This webinar is an opportunity to hear  updates on the initiatives spearheaded by the partnership such as the statewide inventory on tidegates, identification of funding needs and strategies, and streamlining permitting processes. There will also be time allotted for dialogue and feedback to facilitate information sharing among councils, SWCDs, and land trusts. Feedback and input from this webinar will then be relayed back to the Tidegate Partnership. Looking forward to an engaging discussion!
