Thank you for your interest in Ashland's Watershed. The 15,000+ acres Ashland Creek Watershed begins on the slopes of Mt. Ashland and drains into Reeder Reservoir, source of the City's municipal water supply. Ashland Creek continues below Reeder Reservoir through picturesque Lithia Park, the Plaza, and between Oak and Helman Streets eventually flowing into Bear Creek below the City's wastewater treatment plant along the Bear Creek Greenway. The majority of the watershed is managed by the U.S. Forest Service for water production and wildlife habitat values. The City also manages nearly 700 acres of forest in the watershed. Here's a list of resources to find out more about this precious resource:
