Public Scoping Comment for Ochoco Irrigation District System Improvements
On August 27, 2019 the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) announced a public scoping meeting and comment period to consider improvements to irrigation infrastructure in Ochoco Irrigation District, located in Crook County near Prineville, OR. 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, Ochoco Irrigation District, the Deschutes Basin Board of Control, the Energy Trust of Oregon, and Farmers Conservation Alliance.
Scoping comments will be accepted through October 18, 2019.
Comments entered on this form will be considered and included in the public record for developing a Watershed Plan-Environmental Assessment.
