Lakeview will get geothermal energy power with installation of new pipeline



LAKEVIEW, Ore. — A new pipeline that is almost complete will soon be online providing geothermal heat to the Lake District Hospital complex and to Lakeview schools.

The pipeline project was near completion, but a new pump that was delayed in delivery was needed, so the completion date has been moved back until around Thanksgiving.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture rural development agency still has to approve the final documents on the project, so the official online date may be a bit longer because of the government shut down.
