Oregon Senate Votes to Provide Legal Authority for Oregon to Implement Sustainable Water Management Plan

“Senate Bill 1567 is a collaborative effort of the communities, industries, and tribes who rely on the Walla Walla Basin and have had to grapple with declining surface and groundwater levels,” said Senator Hansell, a chief sponsor. “Based on my over 40 years of experience as a county commissioner and state senator representing Umatilla County, I understand how intertwined the Walla Walla River Basin is with Oregon, Washington, and the Confederated Tribe of Umatilla Indian Reservation. We must have bi-state coordination on water management efforts for our shared basin to reach its potential.”
