(CORRECTION: The three-way agreement between Prineville, Crook County and the Ochoco Irrigation District to build this hydroelectric project has been canceled. The project itself, however, remains viable and engineers hope to continue pursuing it. We regret the error.)
A plan to retrofit the Bowman Dam in Crook County as a source of hydroelectric power has been abandoned.
It would have added a hydroelectric facility to the 62-year old dam, which created the Prineville Reservoir.
Officials with Prineville, Crook County and the Ochoco Irrigation District formally signed papers dissolving the three-way deal.
Bowman Dam is operated by the Ochoco Irrigation District.
