The "Mirror Pond Project" has been asking people to go to their website and say which of the four options they'd prefer.

 

They include doing nothing, doing similar dredging as in 1984, doing less dredging or removing the dam.

 

Mirror Pond Project Manager Jim Figurski was out at Drake Park on the 4th of July -- listening to people.

 

"Well the overview of what I've heard is the same split conversation, people who would like to see Mirror Pond to stay as it is and then there are the people who would like to see it return to a river state and I think there was a lot of concern how long the dam would stay and when it would be going."

 

Pacific Power has said it would not decide what it was going to do with the dam until after it heard from the people of Bend.

 

Figurski expects the Power Company to make a decision after the results of the questionnaire are made public after July 12th.

 

Figurski wil lbe presenting his findings to a joint meting of the Bend City Council and Bend Parks and Rec Baord on July 16th.
