The Dam Fiasco at Bull Flat: A History of Tumalo Reservoir
September 3, 2019$65 – $75
One hundred years ago the State of Oregon stepped in to help settlers in the Tumalo area salvage their crushed dreams after a rogue’s gallery of grifters, chiselers, swindlers and cheats had left hundreds of settlers high and dry.
The State’s well intended plans to bring irrigation to the area went awry.
Join Mike Berry, history enthusiast and Deschutes County Surveyor, as he recounts the follies and foibles of the Tumalo Project in the area now known as the Tumalo Reservoir.
