The Forest Service recently approved a new permit to allow the city of install a pipeline between Tumalo Creek and the City of Bend.

 

Paul Dewey of Central Oregon Landwatch says Tumalo Creek is in bad shape and suffers from low flows.  He believes this project will further damage it.

 

Last year the city was poised to start the pipeline, when Landwatch filed its first lawsuit and a federal judge stopped the project while she studied the complaint.  THe city instead came up with an adjusted plan that takes less water out of Tumalo Creek and reapplied for a Forest Service permit, which was just granted.

 

This latest lawsuit could once again delay the project as it is fought in the courts.
