Abstract or Summary
  • Eugene Water and Electric Board (EWEB) located in Eugene, Lane County, Oregon, is developing a voluntary landowner incentive program that will provide monetary incentives to non-industrial private forest (NIPF) owners in the McKenzie River Watershed, EWEB’s drinking water source for the metropolitan area of Eugene, to promote good stewardship of riparian areas. This research examines the potential for implementing an effective incentive program, by reviewing best practices of past and existing incentive program targeting NIPF owners, and evaluating primary data from focus groups and interviews with official at other public utilities to investigate foreseen benefits and barriers to implementation of an incentive program through the public drinking water utility to achieve environmental protection sans regulation. Barriers and benefits have been analyzed according to Elinor Ostrom’s framework for Institutional Analysis and Design to identify policy recommendation for upcoming implementation of the proposed program.
