Baker County Watershed

We recognize that our local prosperity is dependent upon current and future availability and quality of our waters. We are committed to ensure that we retain, restore, and enhance the health of our watersheds.

Welcome to the Powder Basin Watershed Council. The council serves three seperate drainages which flow directly to the Snake River: the Brownlee Reservoir (Pine Creek, Halfway), the Burnt River, and the Powder River Subbasins.

Council meetings are held regularly on the first Wednesday of every month, 5:30 PM, at the School District 5J building, 4th and Broadway, Baker City, Oregon. Our meetings are open to the public and everyone is welcome to attend. Please call the Council office to confirm the time and place of meetings. If you are interested in "hands on" involvement and you are willing to commit some time and energy to work for watershed health in Baker County, please contact us!
