Water Acquisition Grants

Background

The OWEB water acquisition program supports the planning and implementation of the acquisition of an interest in water from a willing seller across the state.  Water acquisition grants can support a range of project activities from permanent transfers and temporary leases of instream water rights to incentive-based voluntary curtailments by irrigators. The purpose of this program is to increase instream flow to address the conservation needs of habitats and species and to improve water quality.

Eligible Projects

Programs or projects that plan for or implement, or both, the acquisition of an interest or interests in water from a willing seller for the purpose of increasing instream flow. This can include permanent water right transfers, temporary water leases, and other incentive-based voluntary curtailments by irrigators.
