But city officials say the fire is not in the city of Bend's Bridge Creek Watershed.
The city's outback drinking water facilities are not even in the path of the fire.
This is the area where the city treats and distributes water from Bridge Creek.
Currently the city has shut off its surface water. They hope to turn it back on in a few days, depending on the quality, which can be affected by fire behavior and spring runoff.
The city is encouraging water conservation and wants people to minimize or eliminate irrigation if possible while the city is using groundwater wells only.
