Or. Admin. R. 690-503-0030 - Objectives

The objectives of the Commission in managing the surface and groundwater resources of the Sandy Basin are to:

(1) Uphold existing legislative withdrawals and grants, and state scenic waterway designations, consistent with statutory direction.
(2) Protect existing rights.
(3) Maintain and enhance instream and scenic values in the Sandy River Scenic Waterway and Columbia Gorge and throughout the Sandy Basin by limiting new out-of-stream appropriation from natural summer flows and protecting remaining instream flows in the Sandy River main stem and its tributaries.
(4) Minimize groundwater/surface water hydraulic interference.
(5) Condition permits to regulate future use of groundwater in areas of documented declines near Sandy.
