OAR 690-225-0060
Change in Enforcement Status


In the interest of achieving compliance, the Director at any time may reevaluate the status of the violations and take appropriate action, including reduction of the enforcement level or remission of all or part of any civil penalties assessed.


The Director may terminate proceedings against a Water Supply Well Constructor if the constructor provides acceptable evidence that:


The landowner does not permit the constructor to be present at any inspection made by the Director; or


That the constructor is capable of complying with recommendations made by the Director, but the landowner does not permit the constructor to comply. In such cases, the landowner is responsible for bringing the well into compliance pursuant to ORS 537.535 (Unlawful use or appropriation of ground water, including well construction and operation), and if the landowner was not a party to the original enforcement proceeding the Director may initiate a proceeding to ensure that the landowner does so.
