With winter coming, the whole project is on hold for months.

 

Bend City Councilor Kathie Eckman strongly supported the 20 million dollar water project.  "I'm disappointed, but I'm not surprised.  I'd like to see that not happen, but it has so we'll just deal with it."

 

The nonprofit "Central Oregon Land Watch" filed a lawsuit trying to stop the project.  They claim the forest service faield to adequatley look at the potential harm to wildlife and wetland from the project.

 

The city hoped to begin work before the snow flies, but it's now on hold until a judge rules on the lawsuit -- which is expected to take months.

 

It's estimated the delay could cost the city 24-thousand dollars a day.
