EUGENE, OR -- Judge Ann Aiken has ruled that she agrees with the U.S. Forest Service's environmental analysis of Bend's waterline replacement project. This will allow the project to move forward.
John Allen, Forest Supervisor for the Deschutes National Forest says they are very pleased with the court's affirmation of their analysis and the work of specialists.
Central Oregon Landwatch sued to prevent the project from going forward claiming it would harm the environment. The environmental group is considering an appeal.
