Bend Bulletin Editorial: Canal piping pays off for all

On June 6th, the Bend Bulletin published an editorial about piping irrigation canals.

“The Three Sisters Irrigation District will, by 2020, accomplish something similar districts in the region can only dream about. It will have piped every inch of its 64-mile delivery system and, in the process, provided something good to just about everyone.

Whychus Creek may be the biggest winner of all. TSID draws its water from Whychus Creek, and before piping began the creek ran dry in the summer.
