Booster Pump for Cape Meares

pumpWork was begun on Monday, December 8, 2014, to install the booster pump to supply water from the new Cape Meares water tank to residents who live south of Pacific Street.

The work involved in preparing the site, installing a pad and then locating the pump on the pad will require approximately one week.  With the stormy weather in the forecast for the week the length of time before the pump will be operational may be longer.

There should be no effect on water service until the final connection is made between the pump and the pipes that will provide service.  If there is any interruption of water services check this site for details.

Demolition of Old Cape Meares Water Tank

tank3The demolition of the Cape Meares 100,000 gallon, Cor-Ten reservoir began on Monday, 9/23/14, when the crew  moved in to the location of the tank and, by the end of the day,  completely removed the steel top of the reservoir.  On Tuesday, 9/24/14, the sides of the reservoir came down in sheets 6 feet wide by 12 foot in length.  By the end of the day the tank demolition project was one-third complete.  With all the oxy/acetylene torch cutting going on, the damp weather has been beneficial in creating a safe environment for the project.
