Bob Gravely with Pacific Corp says after a lengthy inspection and looking at the economics of it, it just didn't make sense to continue using the dam.

 

"Typically we either sell dams to an interested party or remove them.  What we have here is essentially the same.  The only difference is a strong community interest in the future of Mirror Pond.  What's happening  is a desire not to act in a way that makes that decision for the community."

 

Pacific Corp is just starting to meet with Bend City Councilors and Parks and Rec officials about how much it would cost, if anything to obtain ownership of the dam.

 

Local officials say no money will be spent before public discussion of options are held.
