Fun Fact Friday ... In 1938 COID, Crook County Improvement (Lone Pine) District and the Arnold Irrigation District formed a cooperative effort with the federal government to construct a dam at Crane Prairie for winter water storage. The Reservoir is one of central Oregon's premier wildlife viewing sites because it attracts so many nesting and/or migrating birds.Read more

Due to river flows we will be staggering the dates for the January stock run. The Central Oregon Canal (COC) will stay the same 1/7/-1/10 but the Pilot Butte (PB) Canal will start on 1/9-1/12. Please call us at (541) 548-6047 with any questions. If you would like to have stock water, please contact the office to make your request. Orders must be placed at least 48 hours before the water run. We are planning to run both canals at the same time, but depending on river flows we may need to stagger the schedules and run one canal at a time. Please note that these are tentative dates and may be rescheduled and/or canceled due to inclement weather, low flows in the Deschutes River or unforeseen events. Please check back for changes or updates.Read more

Just two months into the new water year, Oregon is already lagging behind in precipitation and snowpack across much of the state, deepening concerns about another difficult drought year in 2019. Snowpack is critical for farmers, ranchers and fisheries in the West, because it acts as a natural reservoir for water to gradually replenish streams and reservoirs into summer.

Have you noticed a white residue in the empty irrigation canals? There’s always a certain amount of plant material and algae suspended in the canals. When we shut down the water, the plant matter winds up on canal banks and dries out. This year it’s a little more pronounced and can be attributed to Wickiup Reservoir being drawn down more than normal.Read more
