Who needs the water more? The debate in Central Oregon has been going on for decades. Now one issue in Prineville is before the U.S. Congress for the second time. Prineville Mayor Bette Roppe says the city needs more water to grow their economy and get residents off shallow wells near septic systems. She says there is plenty of it behind the Bowman Dam. For the last four years, she's been working with government agencies, the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs and environmental groups trying to come up with a solution. Rep. Greg Walden, R-Ore., brought the issue back before the House Tuesday. "The city of Prineville right now is constricted -- they don't have enough water," Walden said on the House floor.
