Statement by the Deschutes Basin Board of Control regarding the  

Center for Biological Diversity’s notice of intent to sue the U.S.

July 22, 2015

We understand the Center for Biological Diversity has submitted a formal notice of intent to sue the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation regarding the Oregon spotted frog.  We are unaware of the Center’s underlying intentions because the Center has never been involved in the Deschutes Basin’s collaborative restoration efforts with agricultural, business, tribal, and conservation interests.

Notice to Patrons

COID Drought Statement 4/21/2015

The COID Board of Directors has reviewed the Deschutes Basin water outlook for the 2015 irrigation season and will be taking measures to conserve to the best of our systems’ ability.  We are on alert for potential curtailment towards the latter part of the season (late August/early September) but plan to deliver our normal flows until that time. As a reminder, the State only allows us to deliver natural flows at 3 gpm from April 1 to May 1, 4.5 gpm from May 1 to May 15, and full flow of 6 gpm starting from May 15 to Sept. 15.  

There has been a request made to the Deschutes County Commissioners by another district to declare the Deschutes Basin in a drought year.  Should this occur, we may be required by the State to operate on our current drought management plan.  We will be posting regular updates on our website and notifying our Patrons as the season progresses.
