management through two key goals: A) to directly address Oregon’s water supply needs,
and B) to restore and protect streamflows and watersheds in order to ensure the long-term
sustainability of Oregon’s ecosystems, economy, and quality of life.
Site includes information on ground and surface waters, water law, water management, water
rights and transfers and well construction and compliance and the strategic framework plan to
