Golf Course Exercises Water Right

Construction Begins On D-Lake Irrigation Line

The Confederated Tribes of the Siletz Indians took another step toward the eventual use of water from Devils Lake for watering the Golf Course with the commencement of construction of a new irrigation line on December 22nd.  The new line crosses under Hwy 101 just East of  West Devils Lake Drive and enters the lake across from the Blue Heron Marina.

The Tribe obtained the contractual use of a historical water right originally used as the water supply to Oceanlake, when the Lincoln City Council approved an agreement contemplated in May 2010 between the City and the Confederated Tribes of the Siletz Indians.  With their approval in the Aug 22, 2011 meeting, the City Council  entered into an agreement for the City to lease part of its senior water rights on Rock Creek for use on the golf course. The DLWID captured this recent construction with a series of photographs including the one shown here. The remaining photos can be viewed on the Districts Facebook page.  For more information on the transaction, see City and Siletz Tribe Answer Citizens Questions.
