Water Use Reporting
Since 1990, many new permits have conditions requiring water meters to be installed and annual reports to be submitted to the state.
ORS 537.099 requires federal and state agencies, cities, counties, schools, irrigation districts and other special districts report water use on an annual basis.  Procedures and requirements for the annual reporting of water use have been established in OAR Chapter 690 Division 85.
