In the Verde Valley, we treasure the Verde River and what it provides to our communities, businesses, and ecosystem. But as populations grow, so does the demand for water. If nothing is done, there is the potential for water levels and river flows to continue to decline. But we as a community have the potential to shift this outcome, preserving a flowing river and protecting water supplies, while promoting sustainable economic development.

The Oak Creek Watershed Council (OCWC), formerly the Oak Creek Canyon Task Force, was organized in 1994 by the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) as an informal watershed group, and evolved into a community-driven non-profit organization in 2003. The Oak Creek Watershed is part of the Verde Watershed. The Oak Creek Watershed Council is dedicated to maintaining a standard of excellence for watershed stewardship, as well as preserving the integrity of Oak Creek, and its tributaries.
