Purpose and Policy


Purpose. OAR 340-053-0050 (Purpose and Policy) to 340-053-0110 (Permit Requirements for Graywater Reuse and Disposal Systems) prescribes requirements for the permitting of graywater reuse and disposal systems. The purpose of this division is to protect public health, safety and welfare; public water supplies; and waters of the state.


Policy. It is the policy of the Environmental Quality Commission to encourage the use of graywater for beneficial purposes not requiring potable water because it reduces demand on drinking water sources and may conserve groundwater and stream flows by reducing withdrawal.
