Rep. Hastings' is Strong Supporter of Black Rock Reservoir Project

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, Wash- KNDU talked to U.S. Rep. Doc Hastings about Black Rock Reservoir. The project is a plan to build a water storage reservoir in the Yakima River Basin.

Hastings has been a strong supporter of the project. The Bureau of Reclamation has recommended no action on Black Rock and other proposals saying it is too expensive.

"The fundamental issue still remains. We need more storage in the Yakima Basin and we will continue working with all those involved to get more storage," said Hastings.

Hastings says he submitted a funding request to the Bureau of Reclamation to get money for the next fiscal year starting on October 1st for the reservoir project.
