A photo of the Integrated Water Resources Strategy (IWRS) PublicationOregon’s Integrated Water Resources Strategy (IWRS) recommends that the Department help places undertake a collaborative, integrated approach to water planning. Place-based integrated water resources planning (also known as place-based water planning) is a voluntary, locally initiated and led effort, in which a balanced representation of water interests work in partnership with the state to understand and meet their instream and out-of-stream water supply needs. In 2015 the Department developed Guidelines that provide a framework for planning. The Department also provides financial, technical, and planning assistance to the four communities testing the Guidelines.
