Water in northeastern oregon: following the molecule to rural success--April 2018

"Water in Northeastern Oregon" will be an immersive tour event aimed at highlighting the need for and benefits of rural partnerships and targeted water infrastructure investment. It is co-organized by NOWA, Eastern Oregon Women’s Coalition, Oregon Association of Counties, and Oregon Business Council with the support of the Oregon Water Coalition. The goal is to use existing, visible project concepts in five rural counties to highlight the multiple values of targeted investment in water infrastructure and the cumulative economic, fishery, and environmental benefits of a molecule of water when viewed through a non-compartmentalized (i.e. multi-region) lens.
