Arrangement: Numerical by township and range
Series provides a visual index to water rights applications and permits in Oregon. The volumes consist of hand drawn plat maps that include shaded areas designating the number of acres related to each permit. Each shaded area includes an application number and a permit number that refer to files held by the Oregon Water Resources Department. The maps also show the routes of irrigation ditches, canals, pipeliines, and flumes as well as the location of rivers, springs, dams, points of diversion, ponds, pumps, and other features.
