Joint Review of the Fish Passage Restoration Subaccount

Report to the Oregon Legislature (pdf)
as required by Section 3, Chapter 674, Oregon Laws 2013
September 26, 2018

A joint report of the Oregon Water Resources Department and Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife

ORS 543.760 and 543.765 provide for an expedited licensing process for new hydroelectric projects constructed on existing municipal, irrigation or other water delivery systems that already have certificated water rights. Certain requirements must be met in order to use Oregon’s expedited water right application process to add new hydroelectric projects to existing infrastructure.

Prior to 2013, in order to obtain approval under the expedited process, the holder had to construct, operate and maintain all fish screens, by-pass devices and fish passages as required by the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW). Beginning in 2013, applicants could choose to pay an annual fee into the Fish Passage Restoration Subaccount instead of providing fish passages.  The 2013 legislation required the Oregon Water Resources Department and ODFW to commence a joint review and submit a report on the structure of the annual fees and the function of the Subaccount to a legislative committee on natural resources in 2018.
