Abstract or Summary
  • Oregon's critical ground water area program was designed to protect the integrity of ground water supplies under conditions of sustainable yield. In areas where the demand for water exceeds the rate of natural recharge, wells experience declining water levels. If allowed to continue, this could eventually lead to severe social and economic disruption in the surrounding region. In 1955, the state legislature established the critical ground water area program as the legal framework for the protection of ground water supplies. Five critical ground water areas have since been established to correct problems of declining water levels. The control measures enacted for these areas are designed to restrict the rate of withdrawal to the rate of aquifer recharge, while protecting the appropriation rights of priority water users. By 1985, water levels had responded in most critical area wells and the control programs appear effective.
