U.S. Representative Greg Walden is trying to move a "Wild and Scenic" boundary line away from the Bowman Dam. He calls it a small act that could provide a huge economy benefit to hard hit Crook County. “We need to get this done, and get people back to work in Central Oregon.” Congressman Greg Walden just introduced House Bill 20-60 which would move the Wild and Scenic Boundary line just a quarter mile downstream. That would allow for a hydroelectric power station, and give extra water credits to the City Prineville, allowing for more business development. “It could be huge for Central Oregon. It means real life construction jobs, maybe as many as 50 if it becomes law, just to do the hydro piece. But it also means some certainty for water deliveries for agriculture, for the citizens of Prineville and for growth of companies line Facebook that are looking at Central Oregon to locate.” In a preservation move in 1988, Congress designated about 18 miles of the Crooked River as a national wild and scenic river. But the boundary line goes thru the center of the Dam, and the head of the Bureau of Land Management believes the intent of Congress was to place it just below the Dam.
