Option or Agreement for Use of Existing Right

(1) In order to plan for and mitigate the effects of severe, continuing drought, a local government, public corporation, or water right holder may enter into an option or agreement for the use of water under an existing permitted, certificated or decreed water right within a designated drought area. If approved as provided in sections (2) to (6) of this rule, an option or agreement may be exercised during a period of declared drought after the parties to the option or agreement notify the Department.

(2) Water used under the terms of an approved option or agreement may be used at locations, at points of diversion and for beneficial uses other than those described in the water right.

(3) The holder of the option or agreement is not required to construct any diversion or other appropriation facilities or works.

(4)(a) An option or agreement proposed under section (1) of this rule shall be subject to approval of the Director or Commission. The Director must find that the use of water under the proposed option or agreement will not cause injury to existing water rights and will not impair or be detrimental to the public interest;

(b) A local government, public corporation, or water right holder proposing an option or agreement shall submit an application to the Director. The application shall be accompanied by the fee set forth in ORS 536.050(1)(a). The application shall include the following information:

(A) The name of the local government, public corporation, or water right holder applying for approval of the option or agreement;

(B) The name of the holder of the permitted, certificated, or decreed water right that will be affected by the option or agreement;

(E) A statement that the water is intended for in-stream use, or a description of the lands on which the water is currently used, and a description of the lands on which the water shall be used under the option or agreement;

(F) Evidence that the water to be used under the option or agreement has been used over the past five years according to the terms and conditions of the owner's permitted, certificated, or decreed water right.

(G) If not intended for in-stream use, evidence that the water shall be used to supplement an existing water right held by the local government, public corporation, or water right holder and that water is not available under the existing right.

(5) Upon receipt of an application for an option or agreement, the Director will provide notice in the regular weekly notice of the Department pertaining to applications received and by publication once a week for at least two successive weeks in a newspaper having general circulation in the area in which the water supply for the permitted, certificated or decreed water right is located and in which the option or agreement shall be exercised. The Director shall not take action on an application until at least 20 days after the last date the notice appeared in the newspaper.

(6) Any person whose use of water under an existing water right may be affected by the option or agreement, or any person who represents a public interest that may be affected by the option or agreement, may file a protest against approval of the application with the Department. The protest shall be filed with the Department within 30 days from the date of the first publication. If the petitioner seeks to protect a use of water under an existing water right, the protest shall contain a detailed statement of the petitioner's water use and how the use may be affected by approval of the option or agreement. If the petitioner represents a public interest, the protest shall contain a detailed statement of such public interest and the manner in which the public interest shall be affected by the option or agreement.

(7) Whenever a timely protest is filed or in the opinion of the Director a hearing is necessary to determine whether the exercise of a proposed option or agreement will result in injury to an existing water right or may impair or be detrimental to the public interest, the Director shall schedule a hearing and refer the matter to the Commission for final determination. Notice and conduct of the hearing shall be in accordance with the provisions of ORS 183.310 to 183.550 applicable to contested cases, and the hearing shall be held in the area where the underlying water rights that are subject to the proposed option or agreement are located unless all parties agree to a different location.

(8) If, after a hearing by the Commission or examination by the Director, it is found that the option or agreement can be implemented without injury to existing water rights or impairment or detriment to the public interest, the Director shall issue an order approving the option or agreement. The order shall:

(a) Contain conditions describing the period of time in which use may occur and include a limitation that use may occur under the option or agreement only after a declaration of severe, continuing drought has been made by the Governor, and use may not continue after the drought declaration has been rescinded;

(b) Include any other conditions the Director deems appropriate, including but not limited to water use conservation, measurement and curtailment measures; and

(c) Remain in effect until terminated by the parties to the option or agreement or by order of the Commission or Director.

(9) The Director may review any order issued under subsection (8) of this section to determine whether the order shall be continued in effect, modified or terminated in order to insure protection of other existing water rights and the public interest. Before making such determination the Director shall provide notice and an opportunity for hearing in the manner described in subsections (2) to (6) of this section.

(10) Any proposed change to a previously-approved option or agreement shall be submitted to the Director for approval before the changes may be implemented. Upon receipt of any proposed change, the Director shall proceed as described in subsection (5) of this section. If the Director determines that the proposed change substantially alters the previously-approved option or agreement, the Director may request additional information to review the proposed change. Prior to the date the Director may take action on the change, any person wishing to protest may proceed as allowed under subsection (6) of this section. Only the proposed change may be addressed in the process. The Director shall then proceed as per subsections (5), (6), (7), and (8) of this section. (11) The Commission may enter into an option or agreement for the use of water under an existing permitted, certificated or decreed water right within a designated drought area during the time in which a severe, continuing drought is declared to exist. Water used under the terms of an approved option or agreement may be used at locations, at points of diversion, and for beneficial uses other than those described in the water right. The total use of water by the water right holder and the Commission must be within the rate, volume and seasonal limits of the water right, and must not cause injury to any other water right.

(12) When the Governor declares that a severe, continuing drought exists, the Commission, a local government, a public corporation, or water right holder may proceed

with the terms of an approved option or agreement. In addition to the conditions in the agreement, the terms of the use shall be as follows:

(a) Use may begin at any time, but the total use shall be limited to the rate, volume, acreage, time and other limits of the existing water right; and

(b) The local watermaster shall be given written, advance notice of intent to proceed;
