The guidance below is intended to show the actions that might be taken by counties to submit a Drought Emergency Declaration to the State of Oregon. A state drought declaration enables counties to benefit from emergency streamlined water rights programs, ground water usage programs and other programs that can help citizens. An information sheet is also provided to describe state and federal assistance available for drought.
