The Bend City Council unanimously approved naming the municipal surface water source after a much loved former city employee.

 

The water source will soon be called "Prowell Springs" after Roger Prowell, a city employee who went above and beyond to monitor and protect the watershed and source springs for all Bend residents.

 

Public Works Director Paul Rheault described his recent meeting with Prowell.

 

 

"I met with him, his family, close friend and we talked about this. We presented him with a picture of the springs, and we also gave him a booklet with all the copied of all the letters of support to have the springs named after him. It was a pleasure to meet him and see his family and to see how important this was to Roger."

 

The Council approved informally naming the springs after Prowell, as well as applying to the Oregon Geographic Names Board to formally rename the springs.
