      Santiam River Basin, Oregon Effects of landuse and climate change on water resources resiliency: implication for reservoir management. Using the hydrologic modeling output from the uncertainty analysis, this study compares hydrologic variability across the projected land use, climate, and policy changes in the Santiam Basin, the reliability, resiliency and vulnerability of reservoirs to. The Santiam River had a trail on the south bank starting at Detroit that went up as far as Pamelia Creek. From here the Pamelia Lake Trail forked eastward. According to local legend, pack strings of horses carried hay bales in to the lake to dam the subterranean outflow and raise the water level.

      Constriction of the river channel causes the stream's velocity and erosional power to increase substantially. Erosion of these rocks causes curious textures. One of the more striking of these is a fluting or sand-blasted effect. Sand, borne in the water, cuts long, finger-size grooves or flutes parallel to the direction of stream flow. Water temperature models of Detroit Lake, Big Cliff Lake, and the North Santiam River in northwestern Oregon were used to assess the potential for a hypothetical structure with variable intake elevations and an internal connection to power turbines at Detroit Dam (scenario SlidingWeir) to release more natural, pre-dam temperatures year round.
