A slowdown in home construction in Prineville during the last few years could mean some extra water is available for other possible businesses.   Economic Development Manager for Prineville and Crook County Jason Carr says they continue to work on drawing new business to hard-hit Prineville, and having enough water to run those businesses could be a challenge.  "Really what the City wants to do long term is to be able to re-allocate water at the Bowman Dam at the Prineville Reservoir so they can transfer some water rights from there to existing wells; so they can pump some more water than they currently have the rights for." Recently, leaders with Facebook announced they will double their footprint in Prineville, and Mayor Betty Roppe says they are also working with other notable businesses in hopes of bringing them to Prineville.
