You may have noticed that parts of Oregon’s scenic landscape appear more brown than usual. Oregon Travel Experience is one of many state agencies enacting water conservation plans during our state’s drought conditions.

- Reducing or eliminating landscaping irrigation
- Enacting a temporary moratorium on new landscape features
- Working to find and repair even small water leaks
- Installing waterless urinals in the men’s restrooms
Oregon’s drought may persist or grow worse over the next few years, so now is the time to get ahead of our water-resource challenges. We will continue to monitor the situation and to implement creative solutions.
