Act Now: Water Can’t Wait

It’s time to speak up for Oregon’s water

Even as we experience one of the wettest winters in a decade, the future of Oregon’s water resources is uncertain, and NOW is the time to speak up.

On March 22, 2017 – World Water Day – lawmakers will hear public testimony on the Smart Water Management bills (House Bills 2705, 2706, and 2707). This is your opportunity to tell the committee working on these bills that you want them to take action now to protect our water resources.

We need your help! Submit comments online before Tuesday, March 21 at 3pm to make your voice heard on these issues.

Submitting written testimony: 

Submitting testimony is like sending a letter to your legislator, but in this case it will be seen by the entire committee and be part of the public record for these bills.

  • Step 1: Read our blog on why “Water Can’t Wait” to help you frame your remarks. Personalize your message based on your own experiences, values, and the things that matter most to you – like the security of our food system, protecting your community’s drinking supply, the future of your business, teaching the next generation to fish, or safeguarding Oregon’s iconic places.
  • Step 2: Be sure to explicitly state that you support these bills (HB 2705, 2706, 2707) and ask the Representatives on the committee to pass them this session.
  • Step 3: Send your testimony to by 3pm on Tuesday, March 21 (24 hours prior to the hearing).
