Water Emergency at Cape Meares

water

At approximately 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, October 1, reports were received of low or no water pressure from Cape Meares community residents.  The Oceanside Water District was contacted and discovered that the 200,000 gallon water reservoir was empty.  Efforts are underway to locate and repair the breach that emptied the tank.

For any residents that do have pressure – there is a “boil water” advisory that will remain in place until the break is located and repaired and the water has been tested and passed.

Attempts have been made to supply emergency drinking water to residents unable to drive to Tillamook to purchase their own.  If you are planning on visiting the Cape Meares community, be aware of the water issue and please bring your own!

Emergency drinking water is available to community residents at the local Cape Meares Community Center.  Contact the OWD if you are unable to obtain supplies for your personal use.

At this time it is unknown when the water service will return to normal.

Removal of Water Pipe from Cape Meares Slide Area

pipe
In the past the Oceanside Water District provided service to Cape Meares by transporting water from the treatment plant across a 3,000 foot section of the major slide area north of the now closed Loop Road.

After the new water tank became available for Cape Meares last summer, the piping across the slide area to the former Cape Meares water tank was no longer required.

During the week of March 9 this water pipe was extracted from the slide area in one 3,000 foot section. It will now be available for future use by OWD. The picture appearing with this posting is of our watermaster, Alan Tuckey, and his assistant, David Nordman.

Cape Meares Pump Station

A miscalculation involving the pump station in Cape Meares has caused a delay in putting it into operation.

Plans are being developed in order to remedy the situation ASAP.  We apologize for the delay.
