Outstanding Resource Waters are high quality waters that constitute an outstanding state resource due to their extraordinary water quality or ecological values, or where special protection is needed to maintain critical habitat areas. The Environmental Quality Commission adopted Oregon’s ORW policy, part of the state’s antidegradation policy, in 1991 and may be found at OAR 340-041-0004(8). To date, no waters have been designated ORWs in Oregon.
