About the Deschutes River Conservancy

The Deschutes River Conservancy (DRC), based in Bend, Oregon, is a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization founded in 1996. The mission of the DRC is to restore streamflow and improve water quality in the Deschutes Basin. The DRC brings together State, Federal, Tribal, and local government representatives, irrigation districts, individual irrigators and private stakeholders to work toward these goals. Collaboration and cooperation are essential components of all DRC enterprises and projects. To date, the DRC’s programs have restored over 200 cubic feet per second (cfs) to the Deschutes River and its tributaries — the equivalent of more than eight Olympic-size swimming pools pouring into our local rivers and streams every hour.
