The City of Bend is beginning an update of its Sewer Collection System Master Plan which guides future improvements for sewer infrastructure. The update is being prepared by City Public Works staff with the assistance of engineering, environmental and financial specialists, and citizen advisors.

An 18-member citizen committee, the Sewer Infrastructure Advisory Group (SIAG), has been appointed by Bend City Council to advise the sewer planning.  New members or alternates may be appointed by the Bend City Council, but no new member will be appointed after the orientation period.
