The City of Bend will ask for more time to build a new water treatment facility required by the Environmental Protection Agency. The City Council voted Wednesday to send a letter to the Oregon Health Authority formally requesting a delay. They say the extra time will allow them to knock $29 million off the current price tag of $68.2 million. The current proposal has been heavily criticized for its cost as well as potential environmental implications. The EPA requires the updates in order to treat the water for cryptosporidium.
