About the sandy river

The Sandy River is a 56-mile long river located in northern Oregon. The river was named after the sandbars that form at the mouth of the river. Historically, the river was used for fishing, logging, and transportation. Today, the river is used for hydroelectric power, irrigation, and recreational purposes. The river's hydrology is heavily influenced by snowmelt, and its flow is regulated by several dams and reservoirs, including the Bull Run Reservoir and the Sandy River Reservoir. These dams and reservoirs provide drinking water to the Portland metropolitan area. The river is a popular destination for fishing, camping, hiking, and river-rafting. The watershed of the Sandy River also supports agriculture and forestry in the region.
