Re: “Coalition for the Deschutes

This is the main artery of Central Oregon! Agriculture, recreation, tourism and full-time residents all benefit from a healthy river. While not inexpensive, updating our irrigation system will go a long way to ensuring the water needs of all are met now and in the future! We need to act now.

Re: “2020 Takeout: A Central Oregon Guide to Pickup and Delivery

I'd think it's time to add more Redmond, LP and Prineville to the list? Bend seems to be pretty well covered, and is only about 1/2 the county's population.

Re: “Covered Wagons and Historical Water Rights: Both Out of Date

I love how you think you can read my mind. Unfortunately, your ability there may be on par with your ability to digest what I've written. I did not say I support the HCP as written, and have commented through the process on changes I'd like to see. AGAIN, my point was the editorial finding fault, but offering NO solutions.

Re: “Covered Wagons and Historical Water Rights: Both Out of Date

Mr. Reynolds, I NEVER said I support 100CFS, and in fact am very much informed on what flows we have, and what we should have. The point of this, is that the HCP is not the end-all answer to the problems with the Deschutes. As I noted, my beef with editorials finding nothing but fault with the HCP, yet offer no alternative solution(s), do not help us restore the river to a better state.

Re: “Covered Wagons and Historical Water Rights: Both Out of Date

Great premise. You state the system is antiquated, yet you also state piping “may not be the best answer”. It’s a pretty big part of the answer, considering almost 1/2 the water sent down a canal doesn’t get to the farm. Yes, continued on farm improvements are part of it, and some law changes too. Do you know that 100 year old laws are somewhat restrictive in water transfers?

So, what is your solution? Look at the recent guest column in the Bulletin about “rowing together”. Simply posting an editorial such as this means you don’t have an oar in the water on this issue.
