Water experts recommend conservation

OREGON – It’s looking like maintaining an adequate water supply will not be an issue this spring and summer in Hood River County — as long as users do their part to conserve…“I’ve talked to different irrigation managers and early in the winter season and they were sweating it,” said Jordan Kim, Hood River Soil and Water Conservation District manager.

“But things have really turned around since then … Things have recovered thanks to the big snowstorms we’ve had on the mountain in the last month or so.”

“But we just don’t have the snowpack in the glaciers that we once had on the mountain, as sort of a reservoir up there,” Kim added.
