Harney County Place-Based Integrated Water Resource Plan

The Harney County Watershed Council has asked Oregon Consensus to facilitate place-based water resource planning for the Malheur Lake Basin, per a pilot grant from Oregon Water Resources Department. A water availability work group is looking at sprinkler irrigation technologies and conservation practices that could be among several strategies for sustainable water management in the basin. Potential strategies are being evaluated through lenses of social, economic, ecological and policy impacts, informed by literature research.
