Can You Build A Dock On The Big Deschutes River?
The short answer is… yes and no. The long answer… reliant upon the particulars of a specific property. Here is a brief of the criteria…
“Boat docks and piers are allowed only with a conditional use permit in certain areas on the Deschutes River on private property. These areas are identified by river mile so it is
best to consult a planner as to whether your property is eligible for a dock or
not. There are two types of docks: individual boat docks to serve one property
owner and community docks which serve more than one owner. An individual dock
is only allowed on lots with at least 200 feet of river frontage with maximum
dimensions of 20 feet by 8 feet, and an area not to exceed 160 square feet.
Community docks require at least 100 feet of frontage and cannot exceed 20 feet
in length or 320 square feet in area. Docks must not interfere with navigation on the river or impede the flow of water. Section 18.96.080 of the County Code includes all the conditional use criteria applicable to the construction of a dock. Permission is also required from the Division of State Lands for any work in the bed or banks of a waterway.”
The information in quotations is taken directly from the Deschutes County Website. By no means am I the authority on whether or not you, or the property you may be interested in purchasing qualifies. It is necessary to contact a county planner to check on the feasibility of adding a dock. After gaining an idea of the feasibility, then you will need to go through a more formal application process before the addition can begin.
More information on the permitting process and feasibility of docks on the Deschutes river can be found via the Deschutes County website here, or by calling (541) 388-6575.
