With the reinforcing irons all in place, the concrete foundation practically laid, and the form work the concrete sub-structure ready, the buildings for the new power station of the Bend Water Light Power Co. can now be rushed to completion, which will be, it is said, in about 90 days. The laying of the deep concrete foundation was slower task than had been expected, but with Its completion now the work on sub- and superstructures will progress without Interruption. Construction of the forebay was suspended some time ago, but it is expected a force of men will tackle this part the plant again very soon.
