In 2007, Oregon Consensus worked with the Deschutes Water Alliance, the Deschutes River Conservancy and other stakeholders to assess feasibility of convening a collaborative process to address water management in the Deschutes River Basin. Oregon Consensus provided the facilitation services of RESOLVE, Inc., to conduct an assessment. The assessment report, presented at a May 2006 Water Summit, led to agreement among stakeholders to proceed with a collaborative process. Oregon Consensus facilitated an ad hoc planning team that designed the collaborative process and identified needed resources.
