The Oregon Landslide Risk Reduction Team (OLRRT) facilitates collaboration between the many entities with a role in reducing landslide risk in Oregon. Landslide risk reduction will be focused on (but not limited to) protecting natural resources and water quality, land use, transportation, and public safety. OLRRT is a permanent team, recommended as an action item in the Oregon Natural Hazards Mitigation Plan (2015), that engages state and federal agencies, university researchers, cities, counties, private consultants, and others working to reduce landslide risks.
Mission & Goals
Mission: The Oregon Landslide Risk Reduction Team works together to improve the ability of Oregonians to reduce landslide risk. To reduce risk, OLRRT commits to the following goals:
- Foster collaboration, transfer of geoscience and technical information, and productive linkages between stakeholders.
- Promote landslide awareness, education, preparedness, and risk reduction.
OLRRT is guided by a Leadership Team of eight members representing seven state agencies and the Governor's Office (DOGAMI, DLCD, ODOT, OEM, ODF, DEQ, GEO, and Governor's Office). The Leadership Team schedules meetings, develops agendas, makes recommendations, and coordinates subgroups and activities. The Oregon Department of Geology and Mineral Industries (DOGAMI) provides administration for OLRRT. Leadership Team members serve a multi-year term, with a Chair and Vice-Chair selected by the Leadership Team.
OLRRT meetings are open to the public and include an open comment period as an agenda item.
