Water Advisory Details

PWS ID: OR41 94283
Advisory Type: Boil Water
Reason: Loss of Pressure
Area Affected: System-wide
Affected Populations: All
Begin Date: Apr 09, 2019
Date Lifted: May 10, 2019
Who Was Contacted: Jesse Reigart
Contact Phone: 541-404-4283
Details: The pump at their intake stopped working and the flood waters are too high to service it at this time. Jesse got word that the water was out this morning at 5 AM. He delivered a boil water notice to consumers, but of course they do not have any water to boil right now. For the short term, Jesse is looking into a hauler to refill their 2500 gal storage tank, along with guidelines for limiting water use. Sleepy Hollow is also ready to install a different intake at the river - the pump would be on a floating platform held in place with steel cables. They just had not yet gotten to this planned improvement. I will send Jesse: the hauled water guidelines, the OAR construction standards for intake structures, and contact information for plan review. Jesse will send me a copy of todays boil advisory.

Update 04/19/2019:  Still on boil advisory. They switched to the non-potable pump at the intake, and that water is receiving the same SW treatment, but the NTU is still quite high - 10. They are waiting for the water to lower to repair original pump and to clean out the sediment deposited around the pumps during the flood. Hauling water did not turn out to be practical, given the size of the travel tank and their demand, so the plan is to stay on the boil until they can fix the problem. Still working with Absolute Water Solutions to improve the intake and change pre-filters. They will submit plan review materials.

Lifted 05/10/2019:  Jesse phoned to say that they lifted the boil advisory today. The river had lowered so they could get to their original intake pump and cleaned it out/repaired it. Then they shock chlorinated the system. Subsequent samples were negative for coliform and their chlorine residual and turbidities are at normal levels. They are still working with a consulting company about constructing a new intake but it will not happen as soon as predicted. He requested a "Problem Corrected" public notice template, which is optional for a water system to provide consumers.
