Groundwater study group meets Nov. 18. Residents can find out more about groundwater rules
The Oregon Water Resources Department rules advisory committee (RAC) — tasked with helping develop and refine groundwater rules for the Williamson, Sprague and Wood River drainages — will meet from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday. The public is invited to listen during the session, but the meeting’s purpose is to get feedback from the RAC to prepare a groundwater rules draft that can be published for public comment, according to a news release.Residents can find out more about groundwater rules and the rules process that same night, at an open house at the Sprague River Community Center from 6 to 8 p.m. The open house will provide an opportunity for community members to interact with OWRD groundwater staff and ask questions about groundwater-related activities in the Basin, the release said.
Although the OWRD already has rules governing groundwater and surface water, the recently signed Upper Klamath Basin Comprehensive Agreement calls for the development of groundwater rules for the upper Klamath Basin within the Sprague, Williamson, and Wood river drainages, the release said.The RAC meeting will be from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Mount McLoughlin Room at the Oregon Institute of Technology. The open house will be at the Sprague River Community Center from 6 to 8 p.m. Both events are on Tuesday.
