Flood research
continues for KPIC
Of the Keizertimes
Members of the Keizer
Points of Interest Committee
(KPIC) are looking for infor-
mation about past fl oods in the
So why not look through
old family books?
That’s just what KPIC mem-
ber Kris Adams did recently.
KPIC members are working
on a project that will culminate
with a kiosk at Keizer Rapids
Park detailing some of the big-
gest fl oods of the Willamette
River in the Keizer area. The
topic has been discussed at re-
cent KPIC meetings, including
the one on March 17.
“I found this little book we
had, about the 1964 fl ood I’m
doing,” Adams said. “One tiny
section talks about Keizer. That
have a picture; that’s my house.
I found more about the Christ-
mas fl ood of 1964 but there’s
not as much about Keizer on-
line. There are still a few things.”
Adams noted she was quite
young when her family got the
“I was only 5,” she said. “My
parents bought the book for $1.
We’ve kept it.”
Roland Herrera, the Keizer
City Council liaison to KPIC,
noted local newspapers had
some great pictures of the 1996
fl oods which could be tracked
KPIC member Erica Hed-
berg noted she has made some
progress in getting information
about the 1890 fl ood.
“I found a picture of my
fl ood,” she said. “The Marion

County Historical Society had

from 1964. A lot were from
Salem, some were from Keizer,
I’m just not sure where.”
Debbie Lockhart, deputy
city recorder for Keizer, said
KPIC members have the free-
dom to decide how the infor-
mation gets presented.
“Pictures are good, then you
could do a few explanatory
things,” Lockhart said. “There
could even be statistics like how
long the fl ood lasted and how
high it got.”
Hedberg noted she found
one website with information
about what caused the area to
fl ood.
Anita Zahniser noted some
past Oral History interviews –
another ongoing KPIC project
– have mentions of the 1943
fl oods. She suggested getting a
group together to share their
“Wouldn’t that be fun to
have a panel interview talking
just about the fl ood?” Zahniser
