Removal of Water Pipe from Cape Meares Slide Area

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.
