Update on the Capitol Lake/Lower Deschutes Watershed long-term planning project

-

The Department of Enterprise Services is in the process of selecting a consultant to perform an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS), which is the second phase in long-term planning for the Capitol Lake/Lower Deschutes Watershed. An EIS is a tool used in decision making and is required before:

  • Any short-term actions are taken, such as initial dredging.
  • A long-term management plan can be selected for implementation.

Updates on the project and the consultant selection process are available on the Enterprise Services Long-Term Planning for Capitol Lake/Lower Deschutes Watershed webpage

Once a consultant team is selected and under contract, a schedule of the EIS work will be developed and shared, including opportunities for public and stakeholder input.
