Bend Surface Waterline Improvement (Decision Withdrawn)

The Forest Service is taking action on a Special Use Application from the City of Bend. The proposed Special Use Permit would authorize: Construction of a single, approximately 10-mile long replacement water supply pipeline that would be installed primarily within the Forest Service Road 4603, Skyliners Road, and Forest Service Road 4606-100 corridors. And replacement of the above-grade portions of the Bridge Creek intake building with a new, remotely controllable intake and installation of new fish screens that are compliant with current Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife screening regulations.

Location Summary

West of Bend, Ore., between the City's water intake and Outback Reservoir Site. Pipeline route is primarily along FSR 4601 and 4603.

District: Bend/Fort Rock Ranger District
