  • Oregon's Integrated Water Resources Strategy
    The State of Oregon has launched its first Integrated Water Resources Strategy.  Adopted by the Water Resources Commission on August 2, 2012, the Strategy provides a blueprint for understanding and meeting Oregon’s water quantity, water quality, and ecosystem needs now and into the future.  Using a process that involved extensive public outreach, the Strategy identifies the most critical water‐related challenges facing communities throughout Oregon. It offers recommendations in 13 different issue areas to address these challenges.
