A major hurdle in getting more water and jobs into Crook County is achieved as the U.S. House passes Representative Greg Walden's Central Oregon Jobs and Water Security Act.  Walden says the legislation will allow more water into Prineville, a key in developing new business in the area.  "So this bill will allow Prineville to access roughly 6% of that water, or 5,100 acre feet, and the city would pay a fair market value for the water.  Now that extra water would allow the city to tell perspective companies 'hey, you can bring your businesses and jobs to Prineville, we now have the water you need.' That’s certainty in the job market. It would also allow the city to provide water to an additional 500 homes within the city, which currently, the City of Prineville it can't do because it's maxed out it's mitigation credits."  Walden says the legislation will also allow small scale hydro-power; that will improve the release of water and improve fish and wildlife habitat, by correcting the boundary line of the Crooked River Wild and Scenic Area.
