A Bend attorney is raising questions about planning for a major investment in the City's surface water source. I instead of spending $58-million for a water treatment plant and a new pipeline, Bill Buchanan says it would be much cheaper to use well water: “Basically you looking at a difference of $500,000 or $600,000 to pump electricity and wells; versus the cost of servicing the debt of $2.75-million.  There is obviously a huge savings in going with wells.” City of Bend Water Utility Manager Tom Hickman agrees that a surface water system would be a cheaper short term solution, but may not be a good answer long term.   “It’s a fundamental goal when you are doing water system and water supply planning for a municipality, to develop redundancy in your system.” Hickman says a surface water system is a known commodity and it's much easier to monitor and to control.
