Water Management Plans

The North Unit Irrigation District submitted its 2022 Water Management and Conservation Plan (WMCP) under OAR Chapter 690, Division 086 (2002). Under this Oregon statute, "The Water Resources Commission has adopted a statewide policy on Conservation and Efficient Water Use (OAR 690-410-0060). The policy requires major water users and suppliers to prepare water management and conservation plans. These rules provide a process to ensure the efficient use of the state's water resources and to facilitate water supply planning consistent with water supplier and Department capabilities."

In addition to the 2022 WMCP,  in January of 2023, the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) in Oregon released a Final Watershed Plan-Environmental Assessment (Plan-EA) and a Finding of No Significant Impact for the North Unit Irrigation District Infrastructure Modernization Project. This Watershed Plan-Environmental Assessment has been prepared under the Authority of the Watershed Protection and Flood Prevention Act of 1954 (Public Law 83-566). The Plan-EA has been prepared in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969, Public Law 91-190, as amended (42 United States Code [U.S.C.] 43221 et seq.). The Plan-EA is to be considered for authorization of Public Law 83-566 funding of the North Unit Irrigation District Infrastructure-Modernization Project (Project). The Project seeks to improve water conservation and water delivery reliability in Oregon’s Deschutes Basin.
