Fundamentally projects of this scope require a great deal of funding. This project is no different. While the price tag for this project is not as high as the Pelton Round Butte Complex, it is a significant investment by the Deschutes Valley Water District.
To that end, the Deschutes Valley Water District has already committed and spent a substantial amount of their own capital they have agreed to invest in it. With the understanding per the Settlement Agreement in place, it falls on the other partners to help support completion of it.
Within the scope of the Settlement Agreement there is an opportunity for you to help us reach completion of this project. Each of your dollars will help benefit the whole, and we encourage you to contact us with questions you may have about your donation.
Who will see the direct benefit to local wildlife populations, increased revenue to businesses from the angling community, beneficial nutrient delivery to the agriculture industry from a healthy fishery, and of course the insects and plants that make up our beautiful Central Oregon? ALL OF US WILL.
That is why it is important that you donate today.
Your commitment to this project helps create a better future for the Crooked River Basin and all those who call it home.
Thank you for your time and consideration in this matter, and we look forward to the day we can all look back with each other and smile that we helped create a brighter future for steelhead in the Crooked River Basin.
