The Beaver State Podcast Episode 71: Water Part 1 - The Clackamas Watershed

October 8, 2021

Oregon’s rivers, streams, and aquifers support a wide range of benefits for both humans and the environment—sources of water for drinking, agriculture, recreation, and essential habitat for fish and wildlife. A clean and reliable source of water is critical for meeting Oregonian’s basic needs and for supporting Oregon’s economy, but it all hangs under the shadow of climate change. In this episode, we talk to ODFW's Ben Walczak, Clackamas River Water Provider's Kim Swan and PGE's Nick Ackerman about a partnership to tackle the impacts of drought.
