And that makes it difficult to figure out what should be done with Mirror Pond.
Bob Gravely is a spokesman for Pacific Power.
"We're at a place where we know we have a 100 year old faciliity they probably won't remain economically viable for a lot longer . What would typically happen is we would remove the dam or sell it to a third party. But since it's located in the downtown area, we were very much interested in seeing the community process play out."
Pacific Power officals had said they were not going to make any decision about the dam, until the heard from the community about what it wanted to do with Mirror Pond.
