Intended Use Plan

Each year, Oregon must submit an Intended Use Plan (IUP) to U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for approval (see EPA DWSRF Interim Final Rule, 40 CFR Part 35.3555(a) &(b)). The IUP demonstrates how Oregon intends to use DWSRF program funds for that year and explains how low-interest loan and grant assistance to eligible water systems is prioritized throughout the state of Oregon. Once EPA has reviewed and approved the IUP, the federal funds may then begin to be released.

Public comment on the IUP will typically be open one time during the year. During those open comments periods, the document will be posted here for public viewing. To view the IUP, please see below. If you have questions, email Oregon Health Authority's Drinking Water Service at

Documents in other languages, large print, braille, or other alternative formats can be requested by contacting OHA at 971-673-0405 or email
