ON WATER CONTROLLING OUR DESTINY… the future of the Oak Creek Watershed


The Oak Creek Watershed is part of the Verde River Watershed and has an area of approximately 300,000 acres where all the water that is under it, or drains off it, goes into Oak Creek. Oak Creek is the major tributary of the Verde River and meanders for about 50 miles from its headwaters at the top of Oak Creek Canyon to the confluence with the Verde at Cornville and Cottonwood, Arizona.

Oak Creek Outreach Grant

The Oak Creek Watershed Council (OCWC) has been awarded a $253,326 grant by the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) through its water quality improvement grant program to address polluted runoff from many different sources. Oak Creek, from its headwaters to around its confluence with the Verde River, is listed as in exceedance for E. coli bacteria, an indicator of fecal pollution.
