Latest on Settlement Negotiations Between City of Bend Leaders and Central Oregon Landwatch

The meetings are done in executive session -- and there's been no significant progress yet, but city councilor Mark Capell says they're getting there.

 

"What they're after is putting more water in Tumalo Creek.  I want  to put more water in Tumalo Creek, but I don't think you need to hold the water project hostage to do it. We can work together to accomplish that by making Tumalo Irrigation more efficient so they don't have to use as much."

 

Central Oregon Landwatch field a lawsuit to stop the city's water project claiming it would harm the environment and reduce the water flows in the creek.  In recent weeks, a federal judge in Eugene didn't buy that argument and denied that injunction, but ordered the two sides to continue settlement negotiations.
