|Council member Diane Rapaport is writing a personal blog about water issues in the Harney Basin. The views expressed are those of the author.|
At meetings of the Groundwater Study Advisory Committee, Harney County Watershed Council, and the collaborative Community Based Planning sessions, domestic well and other users have been reporting drops in water levels. Both the United States Geological Survey (USGS) and the Oregon Water Resources Deparment are conducting a formal groundwater study; OWRD is in charge of the observation wells for formal data. However, some users whose wells are not part of the study, want to know how to report and register well complaints.
