The Bend City Council is taking action to file an extension about meeting EPA water treatment requirements. If the extension is granted, that could help shave $20 million off the cost of the $70 million water project. Bend City Manager Eric King says they are taking steps to push back the water treatment deadline of 2014. “We are pursuing making the case by the end of the year and should have a response from the state in a couple months. If approved, it could change what the project looks like and the cost to taxpayers. That's something we're actively pursuing.” Portland was granted an extension to its water treatment deadlines recently and Bend hopes to get the same.
