GRANT COUNTY OR: ODA to change water quality management

Some major changes are coming in the way the Oregon Department of Agriculture handles water quality concerns. The ODA historically addresses water quality issues on a complaint-driven basis, but that will all change according to Kyle Sullivan with the Grant Soil Water Conservation District. He wants to inform local landowners that the state agency will be taking a more proactive approach:

“They’re changing gears a little bit, and going to something they call the Strategic Implementation Area Program. They’re going to take an active look at the watershed and agricultural private lands within the watershed.

Using satellite imagery and aerial photographs, they’re going to look for potential violations of the agricultural quality management rules.”

A meeting that will explain the changes in detail, along with time for questions, will be held March 5th at the Grant County Regional Airport beginning at 6pm.
