There has been some big news regarding the Lower Deschutes river and the impact of the Selective Water Withdrawal Tower at the Pelton Dam. Earlier this week, the Deschutes River Alliance filed suite against PGE on the impact the SWWT has taken on the Lower Deschutes.
This alongside the pending legal battle on the Deschutes above Bend will potentially create a Cruel Summer for agencies that are mistreating the Deschutes watershed. Bravo to those out there fighting the good fight, be sure to get involved if you can.
