Bureau of Rec boosts Deschutes Water Conservation

The Bureau of Reclamation recently announced it will dedicate $3.7 million towards water conservation efforts in the Deschutes River watershed. The Deschutes River Conservancy will use these funds for improvements in irrigation efficiency in several areas of the basin, aiming to provide more instream flows for fish and wildlife. The funds are part of the recent federal stimulus plan. See the CBB for more info.
