Critics of the Surface Water Improvement Project (SWIP) were out in force at the Bend City Council meeting last night, and they came away unsatisfied with the Council's vote to proceed. "Stop the Drain" spokesperson Moey Newbold says while Councilors agreed that some aspects of the project need reviewing, it didn't go far enough: "The bottom line is: this resolution doesn't change the original critiques of the project. One: the City Council and it's staff has never addressed the fact that the foundation of the project was shaky; the studies released have shown to be seriously flawed. And secondly, it's not going to change the overall cost of the project, because by committing to build the $30-million pipeline they're in essence committing to build the rest of the project, which is the very expensive treatment plant." Newbold says moving forward, they will continue with public outreach and education about the expense of the project and what they see as inaccuracies in the design. She adds that they are planning to target City Council seats that are up forelection in November; and support candidates that want to stop or completely revise the current project.
