Efforts to ensure Prineville has enough water to attract news jobs made some headway on Capitol Hill on Thursday. U.S. Representative Greg Walden of Oregon held a legislative hearing today for his Central Oregon Water and Jobs Security Act. Changing a boundary line at the Bowman Dam will help clear the way for clean hydropower at the dam. “Crook County's unemployment is the highest in the state, 15% to 20% the last couple years. And this is a no cost, job creating clean energy bill; this is it and we do more than that.” Construction of the hydropower project would employ 50 construction workers and would provide approximately $140,000 in annual property tax revenue to Crook County.
