In the fall of 2020 the Deschutes River took on a cloudy green color from silt scoured from the bottom of Wickiup Reservoir. Water levels reached unprecedented lows as the reservoir was drained for the first time since the dam was built in 1949. In this presentation Kyle Gorman, Regional Manager for the Oregon Water Resources Department, will reflect on what happened in 2020 and the projections for water resources in 2021.
