CURRENT STATUS OF CITY WATER MAIN LEAK
While the extent of the damage and necessary repairs/solutions are still being determined, the current estimate of the City water main leak in the Port property is that it will take 7-to-10 days to acquire all necessary parts and perform the labor to repair these older sections of line.
All City residents will be provided water service during this time period and no ‘boil- water’ notice is anticipated. There are customers of the Long Prairie and Baseline water districts that are currently out of water; however, those districts are working with the City to assemble a temporary bypass that should provide water to those districts by Thursday, July 10th. There may be some ongoing problems for houses located in those districts at higher elevations. For detailed questions related to service in those districts please call Long Prairie Water District at (503) 842-1515 or Baseline Water District at (503) 815-1894.
Further details regarding this issue will be updated as information comes in.
