Peterson Creek Reservoir Drained

CROOK COUNTY, OR -- A Crook County landowner is offering a reward for the arrest and conviction of those responsible for damage done to Peterson Creek Reservoir. According to the Crook County Sheriff's office, someone trespassed on private property east of Big Summit Prairie, and manipulated a valve. The damage resulted in the reservoir draining nearly 75% of its water before it was discovered. 

 

Governor Kate Brown has declared a drought emergency in Crook county, and water will be a valuable commodity this summer. The private landowner is offering a $5,000 reward. Anyone with information is asked to call Sgt. James C. Savage at the Crook County Sheriff's office: 541-447-6398.
