The City of Bend is looking at funding a new study on the city's nearly $70 million water project. That plan has drawn a lot of criticism from people believing it’s too expensive, and the study was done by an engineering firm with a vested interest in the project. City Manager Eric King says the study would not start until they get an answer back from the State on a possible delay on meeting EPA requirements to treat surface water for cryptosporidium, a potential deadly  microorganism.  “We've got a few months to help define the scope of the study and work with members of the opposition to incorporate their concerns. We'll re-look at the number that went into the financial model, because I think that's where there's the most concern.” The study would look at the cost of the current project compared to an alternative that would rely only on wells. The study is expected to cost between $10.000 and $20,000, and the cost may be shared by several different entities.
