Oregon Revised Statues (ORS)

Oregon Revised Statutes (ORS) are the codified laws of Oregon, enacted by the Oregon Legislative Assembly or Citizen Initiative. The Oregon State Legislature maintains a website of Oregon Revised Statutes.  Most laws pertaining to water rights are included in Volume 13.

For convenience, the Oregon Department of Water Resources provides pdf publications of Oregon’s Revised Statutes specific to water quantity and water rights: 

Note: Publications are typically issued in even-numbered years for the prior odd-year’s session.  For the most current Oregon Revised Statutes, please visit the Oregon Legislature’s website
