Walden Pushing for Help with Bowman Dam


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.
