Irrigation Efficiency and Water Management


In 2006 OWEB met with the Water Resources Department, watershed councils, SWCDs, Department of Agriculture, Oregon Water Trust, Natural Resources Conservation District, OSU, and Deschutes River Conservancy to discuss how to evaluate irrigation efficiency and water management projects. This first step helped OWEB move forward in the development of its irrigation efficiency/water management effectiveness monitoring program. Other steps identified at the meeting included:

  • Clearly define what OWEB means by irrigation efficiency.
  • Create a draft of OWEB’s irrigation efficiency restoration and monitoring objectives.
  • Draft monitoring standards for irrigation efficiency effectiveness monitoring projects.
  • Find existing data so as not to recreate it. (This was completed in Malheur Basin -- see below.)
