State officials will be in Bend Wednesday to personally look into claims by a water usage watch dog group that the City is illegally taking water from the Bridge Creek Watershed. “We do some background check information, fact finding. Meet with the City and determine you know exactly what is going on. What their City is capable of. Learn from the City why and how they are operating it to determine why things are occurring the way they are.” Kyle Gorman is a Regional Manager for the Oregon Water Resources Department. "Water Watch" claims the City is wasting water by running the Bridge Creek pipeline full and discharging some of that directly into Tumalo Creek without using it. City officials claim they need to run the pipeline at capacity to prevent damage to the aging pipeline. Bend City Water officials say part of the investigation includes snowmobiling into the water shed.
