Lone Pine Irrigation District

Draft Environmental Assessment Under Development

Public scoping comments were accepted October 2 through November 15, 2018 related to proposed irrigation improvements in Lone Pine Irrigation District. Scoping comments will be used to develop a Draft Watershed Plan-Environmental Assessment for the proposed project.  

On October 2, 2018 the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) announced a public scoping period 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. The project is a collaborative effort between NRCS, Lone Pine Irrigation District, the Deschutes Basin Board of Control, and Farmers Conservation Alliance.

A public scoping meeting was held October 17, 2018 at the Wind River Conference Center in Terrebonne, Oregon. Several project documents are located below, including the presentation from the meeting.
