Pond refilling due to begin

Refilling of Bend’s Mirror Pond, through which the Deschutes River has coursed virtually unhampered since last Thursday afternoon, will start Tuesday afternoon.

Water will start piling up in the basin, to hide ugly mud flats, when gates are lowered at the power dam.

The city asked Pacific Power & Light Co. to lower the level, to make possible a survey of the mud accumulations, as a preliminary step to a suggested desilting of the basin
