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.
