Beginning the Adjudication Process


Any water right holder may petition the Director to begin a general stream adjudication. The petitioner may be a registrant or the holder of a right to appropriate water from the subject stream system. The petition may be signed by more than one registrant or permitted or certificated water right owner.


At the start of a general stream adjudication the Director shall send in person, or by registered or certified return receipt mail to each claimant and all holders of permitted or certificated water rights on the stream the notice required by ORS 539.030 (Notice of investigation of stream). The Director shall include a form for any party to file who wishes to be included in the adjudication solely to contest the claims of others.
