Forest Service Open House for the SWIP

The Deschutes National Forest Service has completed its analysis of the environmental impact of putting in a new pipeline for the Surface Water Improvement Project.  Rod Bonacker with the Forest Service says they will hold an open house next Thursday, March 22nd to get public input. “No decision has been made. The analysis is done and people can come out and make comments on it. They can provide input and tell us if we missed anything. We'll take it into consideration before we made the final decision.” Bonacker says overall they found minimal environmental impact from the proposed pipeline construction. The Forest Service plans to make a final decision on whether to give the project the o.k. by mid May. The open house is Thursday, March 22nd 4 to 7 p.m. at the Bend National Guard Armory.
