BMCC to host grand opening
celebration for Precision
Irrigated Ag Center July 27
HERMISTON, OR—
Blue Mountain Community
College (BMCC) will host
a grand opening celebra-
tion for its new Precision
Irrigated Agriculture Cen-
ter Thursday at 1 p.m. at
the Oregon State Univer-
sity Hermiston Agricultural
Research and Education
Center (HAREC), 2121 S.
First Street.
The event is open to
the public, and includes a
ribbon-cutting ceremony
assisted by the Hermiston
Chamber of Commerce. It
will also include comments
from BMCC President Cam
Preus and Board of Educa-
tion Chair Chris Brown, as
well as OSU’s Vice Provost
of Outreach and Director
of Extension Service Scott
Reed, and OSU’s Dean of
the College of Agriculture
Dan Arp. HAREC Direc-
tor Phil Hamm will also
be on hand. Light refresh-
ments will be served, and
tours of the facility will be
available.
BMCC and OSU have
an intergovernmental agree-
ment to house the Precision
Irrigated Agriculture Center
on the HAREC property
since it will mutually ben-
efit both institutions of
higher education. Precision
irrigated agriculture is the
use of technology to make
agriculture more efficient
and effective, which in turn
increases crop yields, de-
creases water consumption
and saves money.
The facility was made
possible through a voter-
approved bond in May
2015, and cost $3.2 million
to construct. It is the second
of three major bond con-
struction projects to reach
completion, following the
opening of the Workforce
Training Center in Board-
man in early April. This
September, the last of the
three major projects—the
Facility for Agricultural
Research Management
(FARM)—will open on the
BMCC Pendleton campus.
Other improvements
funded by the bond were
completed on the Pendle-
ton campus last summer,
and additional upgrades
will be made this summer
for renovated student use
spaces, safety and secu-
rity improvements, and
HVAC/electrical updates.
A renovation at the BMCC
Milton-Freewater Center
is also taking place this
summer, with completion
this fall.

John Day, Pendleton
and Baker City, OR—For-
est officials implemented
Phase B Public Use Re-
strictions on July 20 on
the Malheur, Umatilla and
Wallowa-Whitman Na-
tional Forests due to high
fire danger, the potential
for human-caused fires and
concern for public safety,
forest officials announced
last week. The increased
restrictions pertain to the
use of campfires, smok-
ing, chainsaws, internal
combustion engines and
generators.
Campfires now will
only be allowed in desig-
nated campgrounds and
recreation sites. Liquefied
or bottled gas stoves and
heaters are allowed for
cooking and heating. A list
of designated recreation
sites is available on the for-
est’s websites.
Operating an internal
combustion engine, such
as a chainsaw, is prohibited.

der current Industrial Fire

teragency website at http://

Generators will only
be allowed in the center of
an area at least 10 feet in
diameter that is cleared of
all flammable material; or
when fully contained within
a pickup truck bed that is
devoid of all flammable
material; or when factory
installed in a recreational
vehicle and the generator
exhaust discharge is located
in the center of an area at
least 10 feet in diameter that
is cleared of all flammable
material.
Smoking is only al-
lowed within enclosed

restrictions prohibit mo-
tor vehicles traveling off
designated Forest roads
and trails, except for the
purposes of going to or

within 300 feet of an open
road. Motorized travel on
segments of road where
access is blocked by gate,
barricade, log, boulder or
earthen berm is also pro-
hibited. Vehicles must still
abide by all laws and regu-
lations pertaining to the
area of travel.
