Flier for meeting to discuss Integrated Watershed Resource Strategy, Place-based Planning in Oregon
Report on Place-Based Integrated Water Resource Planning, March 10, 2014, Oregon Water Resources Department
This Discussion Paper examines regional or local water planning approaches from three western states – California’s Integrated Regional Water Management, Texas’ Regional Water Planning Program, and Washington’s Watershed Planning process. The purpose of this paper is to highlight several key planning elements that could inform Oregon’s approach to place-based, integrated water resources planning. Several questions are posed throughout the document, and serve as a starting point for discussion with stakeholders and the public. The state’s objective is to develop guidelines that can facilitate place-based planning efforts within Oregon communities, with the ultimate goal of meeting current and future water needs – in-stream and out-of-stream, including water quantity, water quality, and ecosystem needs.
