Drilling a well.

Rigs are on site to uncap Well Number 6 in anticipation of approval of a conditional use permit that will allow construction of a 750,000 gallon reservoir and waterline to serve the Mission Community Water System.

MISSION – Rigs already are in place at Well Number 6 off South Market Road anticipating approval of a conditional use permit that will go before the Land Protection Planning Commission in a public hearing on April 24.

The Public Works Department for the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation is seeking approval to construct a 750,000 gallon reservoir, a control building, and a waterline to distribute water from the well that was drilled and capped in 2010.

The line would carry water along the west side of South Market Road north to a connection at South Coyote Business Park that serves the Mission Community Water System.

The Planning Commission’s public hearing will begin at 9 a.m. in the Wanaq’it Conference Room at Nixyaawii Governance Center, 46411 Timine Way in Mission.

Also on the agenda is a request from William J. Gentry for a conditional use permit to conduct a timber harvest on about 257 acres on Bell Road near the intersection of Hansell Road and Eagle Creek Road.

The public is entitled and encouraged to attend the hearings and to submit oral or written testimony on the proposed amendments. To obtain further information, contact the Tribal Planning Office at 541-276-3099
