BEND, OR -- The Arnold Irrigation District plans to convert its open-ditch irrigation canals on the south end of Bend to an underground, closed-pipe system, in the latest irrigation modernization project in Central Oregon. Officials estimate it will reduce water loss through seepage, at a rate of 45.1-cubic feet per second, throughout the entire irrigation season.

 

The public can weigh in on planning efforts at a scoping meeting scheduled for April 17, from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Elk Meadow Elementary (60880 Brookswood Blvd. Bend). That input will be included in a draft watershed plan used to secure funding for the project.
