    Trailer Trash Thursday Decline of the Deschutes Edition

    Joel La Follette - Thursday, February 02, 2017

    The Deschutes River Alliance has released this short film documenting the decline of the Deschutes River. Please share this video with friends, family and all those who love this very special river. 

    The Deschutes River is facing a battle for it's life. Changes to the drawdown at PGE's Pelton Dam are seriously effecting the lower 100 miles of river. These changes are doing nothing to improve water quality in the reservoir itself, yet are the main reason for the new mixing tower and operation policy. While the reintroduction of anadromous species above the dam is a wonderful idea, it was just a carrot dangled to the tribes and other user groups to sign off on this plan. What is the cost? Will we lose Oregon's premiere Trout stream in the process? Until we address the issue of the water quality in the Crooked and Deschutes basins we will never improve the water quality in the reservoir. Flushing this water into the lower river is not the solution. Learn more at the Deschutes River Alliance.
