Lone Pine Irrigation District

Public Scoping Meeting October 17th for Irrigation Improvements

On October 2, 2018 the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) announced a public scoping meeting to consider improvements to aging irrigation infrastructure in Lone Pine Irrigation District, located primarily in northwest Crook County, as well as northern Deschutes County and southern Jefferson County. Improvements under consideration may be partially funded through the Watershed Protection and Flood Prevention Act of 1954 (PL 83-566) and would address water conservation, enhancement of aquatic species habitat, and public safety risks while supporting existing agricultural land use. This is a collaborative effort between NRCS, Lone Pine Irrigation District, the Deschutes Basin Board of Control, and Farmers Conservation Alliance.
