Water problem compounded

from the south fork of the
Clackamas River to the
Oregon City hilltop area.
“The problem was com­
pounded when the bacteria got
into the big (16 inch) line going
to the College and settled into
the new sediment washed into
the system upstream,” a
spokesperson for the Oregon
City Street and Water Depart­
ment explained. “There is so
little pressure in the line that
sediment builds up pretty fast.
Then the chlorine just washes
right over the top of the sedi­
ment and bypasses the
bacteria, too,” he added.
The spokesperson, who ask­
ed not to be identified, said
another reason the problem
exists is that the line to the
College ends in a dead end,
which severly limits circula­
tion. “Circulation is vital to
cleanliness,” he added.
Culver said Monday “the ci­
ty water department has flush­
ed the lines, and the recent
tests indicate everything is
satisfactory now.
“The hilltop area receives
water that comes from a filter
plant at the bottom of the hill
when this sort of problem oc-
curs,” he added. He continued
to explain that because the
filter plant line connects with
the mountain line before it
reaches the College, the
bacteria had to be flushed out,
to avoid potentially bad water
coming from the tap. “We are
having the city monitor the
water more closely in the
future than before, so this pro­
blem can be minimized,” he
The mountain line will be
phased out altogether by the
end of march 1985, unless a
six-month extension that the
city requested is approved.
Culver said “a dependable
source of clean water must be
found” by the city.
Using the current filter plant
system on a permanent basis is
out of the question because of
the enormous costs involved.
A 1981 estimate placed the
cost of electricity alone to
power the pumps to get the
water up the hill at $300 per
day, Culver said. “I’m sure
it’s a lot more now,” he add­
When asked what the pro­
spects were for this problem’s
recurrence, Culver said “it is
likely to happen again
throughout the winter and into
the early spring, especially.”
