Ag Groups Form Water Alliance

Several agricultural organizations have formed a new alliance to focus on strategic water investments and policies that will promote water and agricultural sustainability.   Members of the newly formed Oregon Agricultural Water Alliance include the Oregon Farm Bureau, Oregon Cattleman’s Association, Oregon Association of Nurseries, Oregon Dairy Farmers Association, Oregon Water Resources Congress, Northeast Oregon Water Association, and Water for Life Inc.  The alliance formed a steering committee and contracted with consultant Greg Addington, who has experience in organizational operations and state water policy.  Priorities identified by the alliance include shifting state water policy to focus on an adequate, safe, and affordable food supply and growing other environmentally beneficial agricultural products; creating more water storage both above and below ground; building drought resiliency; interstate cooperation in water supply and management; demanding more agency accountability; and reducing litigation.  Additional goals established by the coalition include educating policymakers on the importance of forward-looking water policy, and advocating for investment in water supply.
