Oregon and the rest of the Pacific Northwest face an uncertain water future. Not only will the climate itself be uncertain, but also the political, social, legal, economic and regulatory climates.

What will climate change produce in the way of hydroecological changes? How much will population change, perhaps fueled by climate refugees, stress our water resources? What will the regulatory climate embody? Will a revised Columbia River Treaty with Canada encompass more than power generation and flood control? Do we need a Columbia Basin Compact to cope with future shortages? Will the area see more in the way of regional water management agencies, perhaps straddling state lines? Can the prior appropriation doctrine adapt to the future? Will exempt wells remain ‘exempt’? Do we know how much water will be available?

Join us in Corvallis this coming May as we explore our region’s water future and address the aforementioned questions and many more.
