Public Meeting for Swalley Draft Watershed Plan-EA

October 10, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

On September 21, 2018 the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) released a Draft Watershed Plan-Environmental Assessment (Plan-EA) for the Swalley Irrigation District Irrigation Modernization Project. The proposed project will pipe 16.6 miles of canals and laterals over seven years to improve water conservation, water delivery reliability, and public safety. NRCS developed the Draft Plan-EA in partnership with Swalley Irrigation District, the Deschutes Basin Board of Control, and Farmers Conservation Alliance. A public meeting will be held to inform the community and gather public comments.

The Draft Plan-EA and appendices with supporting information are available at oregonwatershedplans.org. Limited copies of the Draft Plan-EA are also available at the Deschutes Public Library in Bend, the NRCS office in Redmond, and the Swalley Irrigation District office.
