The USDA Forest Service (Mt. Hood National Forest) and Portland Water Bureau have prepared a new Bull Run Watershed Management Unit Agreement pursuant to Public Law 95-200, commonly known as the Bull Run Act. This Agreement serves as a partnership guide for the long-term stewardship of the Bull Run watershed and will replace a 1979 Memorandum of Understanding (MOU). The Agreement provides the revised administrative direction and agreements needed to structure the roles, responsibilities, functional processes, and working relationships for the Forest Service and City of Portland as joint managers of the Bull Run.
Based on public input, staff from the Water Bureau and from the Mt. Hood National Forest have made changes to the final draft of the agreement.A history of the interactions and relationships among the City of Portland , the Mt. Hood National Forest and interested stakeholders in the Bull Run watershed can be found here: http://www.fs.fed.us/r6/mthood/projects ... y_2007.pdf
