Great dam and canal being built near Bend

With the construction of the greatest irrigation diversion dam in Oregon, the Central Oregon Irrigation Company is preparing to water some 18,000 more acres of land. The cost of the North Canal dam and the 7,460 feet of concrete lined canal leading from the dam to the old Pilot Butte will be $150,000. Some $200,000 more will probably, within the next few years, be spent on the extension of the system by the building of laterals.

Backwater from the dam will reach as far up the river as the present power house of the Bend Water, Light & Power Co.
