"Did you know? TAIL WATER AND WASTE: You should only use the water that you need. If you irrigate to the point that water “runs off ” of your land onto a neighbor’s parcel, that is called tail water. By Oregon statute, tail water is the responsibility of the person whose land it runs off, and is not necessarily welcomed by the receiving parcel owner. Tail water may also be considered a waste of water and subject your water right to examination by the District, or by OWRD. The District is becoming more developed and the parcel sizes are becoming smaller. This creates situations where a neighbor may not desire tail water as in years past. Please be conscious of your responsibilities with managing your water rights properly."

Drought Notification: On June 15th Deschutes County Commissioners unanimously approved a Drought Declaration due to low river flows and some of the lowest storage levels ever recorded in area reservoirs. Most of Deschutes and Crook counties are in a state of severe drought, according to the U.S. drought monitor. A portion of Jefferson County is one level up, in extreme drought. Droughts are hydrologically unique events that occur under different historical and climate conditions. But all droughts provide opportunities to improve and adjust water management practices. While we cannot create new water, supplies can be reallocated. Please contact COID if you don’t want or aren’t able to use your water efficiently this irrigation season. The water you don’t use can be passed along to a farmer to produce crops in 2020. The small steps we take as individuals to conserve water add up and can make a huge difference for our region. Interested in sharing your water? Please call COID at 541-548-6047.
