Winter Stock-Run Schedule for the Pilot Butte Canal & Central Oregon Canal
November 26-30, 2018
January 7-11, 2019
February 18-22, 2019
March 25-29, 2019
**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. Stock water runs are for the sole purpose of filling ponds to provide water for livestock. If you would like to have stock water, please contact the office to make your request. Orders must be placed at least 48 hours prior to 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 check back occasionally for changes or updates.

2018 DESCHUTES BASIN HABITAT CONSERVATION PLAN UPDATE

The City and Districts determined they would produce a more comprehensive Plan by working together rather than individually. You can read an update on the plan by clicking on the link below.
