The silt build up is getting bad again and the district is deciding what to do going forward.

 

Some possibilities include dredging the pond again or doing away with the dam and consequenlty the pond eventually.

 

Bend native Wade Fagen ran on this issue when running for city council last year.  He thinks the solution is simple.

 

"You lower the water during the low flow in the fall, when the canals are still running on the south side.  And you'l l see the channel for Mirror Pond is only 8 to 16 feet.  All the rest of the mud flats will dry out.  You let that dry out and you're left with top soil which is easy to extradite without every touching the water."

 

Fagan says if you don't touch the water, he doesn't see why the district would need any state or federal permits to do the work.

 

Bend Parks and Rec is asking residents to fill out a questionnaire on their website to get a feel for the direction the community wants to go on this issue.  They plan to make a final deicison this June.
