Water Rights & Water Well Permit

You probably knew that under Oregon law all ground water is considered a public resource, and with some exceptions, anyone intending to use ground water must first obtain a permit from the Oregon Water Resources Department (ORS 537.545). The neat thing is those of us with wells do not need a permit for the following uses (exemptions).

Group and single-family domestic use up to 15,000 gallons per day.

Stock watering.

Watering any lawn and/or non-commercial garden totaling one-half acre or less in area.

Down-hole heat exchangers.

Any single industrial or commercial development up to 5,000 gallons per day.
