ARPA Completed Projects

In the fall of 2021, The Deschutes County Commission approved an American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) investment of $300,000 to the Deschutes Soil and Water Conservation District (DSWCD) for an On-Farm Efficiency Water Conservation Investment Program.

There was an application period and 15 landowners have been selected to receive up to $20,000 to upgrade and improve their irrigation system from flood to sprinkler. 11 financial agreements have been signed and 6 projects that encompass 50.5 acres have been completed and certified. The total cost for these 6 projects equated to $268,805.41. Each of the 6 landowners were reimbursed $20,000 for their project from DSWCD. These projects included the installation of: 6 wheel lines, 144 k-pods and appurtenances, 7 solid sets, 3 mini gun moveable sprinklers, 1 buried pop up sprinklers system, 4 pumps, 5 mainlines, and 3 ponds.
