Preservation of Water Rights

Asked September 16, 2015, 12:05 AM EDT

Starwood is a small community north of Bend. We have a 13 acre common property which is farmable, but we are having difficulty growing crops which are sustainable on poor soil, yet we must continue to make use of this land in order to maintain water rights which support other elements of our community. What should we do?

You may want to direct this question to the Deschutes River Conservancy as they are water rights specialists and may have good advice on how to use your water rights in alternative ways.
