Saving Water for Fish and Farms: Modernizing Central Oregon’s Irrigation Infrastructure
Did you know 80-90% of the water in rivers across the Western US is diverted for irrigation? Piping leaky canals and upgrading on-farm irrigation saves water, making farms more productive and efficient while allowing more water to remain instream. Learn how these tools have worked to restore Whychus Creek and how they are being used to help fish and farms across the Deschutes Basin.
ABOUT THE RAISE THE DESCHUTES SEMINAR SERIES
Deschutes River Conservancy’s Raise the Deschutes Seminar Series was created to increase regional water knowledge, understanding of local issues, and awareness of available solutions. These monthly seminars provide opportunities for the public to engage with water experts who will present on and answer questions regarding the primary water issues affecting the Deschutes River Basin and the programs in place to address these issues.
