Thank you for your patience during the emergency leak repair in Cape Meares. Water was turned off for approximately one hour to do the repair. Durbin Excavating assisted OWD Watermaster to repair the 1″ service line on 2nd Street N.W.
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.
