The article focuses on the conservation of Deschutes River and protecting steelhead, trout and salmons in Oregon. The river is a 250-mile journey and watered acres of farmlands and cities and is reported that some parts of the river creeks have already dried up. This is alarming to the Central Oregon Irrigation District, for there is drought and some of the steelhead and salmons lost their habitat. This made Deschutes River Conservancy to recover and propagate the river and the fish. They used heavy-duty plastic pipes to raise water efficiency and revived some of the drought creeks. They also used sprinklers irrigation to save some water. The tribes, a confederation of Wasco, Warm Springs and Paiute Indians also help in conserving the river.
