Lawmakers approve Representative Gene Whisnant's Water Mitigation Bill. It's headed to the Governor's desk, where he is expected to sign it. The bill extends a program that will ensure enough water is put back in the Deschutes River for development. “And I think we have a good bill. The biggest use of the Deschutes River is irrigation from farmers, not cities and resort. They use very little we take out of the river.” The Water Mitigation Bill will extend the program until 2029 and requires the Water Resource Department to report to the Legislature every five years on the impact of the program. A study has found that the Deschutes River Basin's groundwater and surface water are intertwined. When groundwater goes down, so do the river levels, so it's important to replenish the water levels taken out.
