Central Oregon Irrigation District Agreements Documents

The Bureau of Reclamation (Reclamation) has completed a Programmatic Agreement (PA) developed in concert with the Central Oregon Irrigation District (COID) and the Oregon State Historic Preservation Office (Oregon SHPO) to increase efficiencies in the procedures used to identify and address impacts to historic properties under Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act when Reclamation funds canal piping projects or other improvements to COID’s irrigation infrastructure.

The PA was developed in accordance with 36 CFR 800.14(b) to streamline Section 106 compliance responsibilities when federal grant funds are awarded or issued by Reclamation to COID for water and energy conservation projects, such as canal piping. In 2014, Reclamation, COD and Oregon SHPO committed to develop this PA under a Memorandum of Agreement that outlined steps the parties would take to mitigation for adverse effects of piping projects on historic properties. Comments received from the public were taken into consideration by Reclamation, Oregon SHPO and COID in modifying the draft PA; this final PA reflects these modifications.
