The Deschutes Soil and Water Conservation District (DSWCD) directors are elected in the November General Election held in even numbered years. Directors serve four-year terms. Director terms are staggered so that all positions are not typically elected simultaneously. For the 2020 Election year three Zone Director positions and one At-Large position will be up for election. find out more about becoming a director by clicking on the icon above.
The water supply forecast for the spring and summer of 2020 is near to above average for northeast Oregon, near-average for western Oregon, and below-average for central, south-central, and southeast Oregon. Water supply forecasts have increased significantly from one month ago for many watersheds, especially in northwest and northeast Oregon. Note that there are still about two months for mountain snow accumulation and three months for significant rainfall, and significant changes in conditions and water supply forecasts are possible.
