Notice of Big Creek Creek Pump Station Overflows
Due to mechanical failure of one of the pumps on the afternoon of December 22nd, the Big Creek Wastewater Pump Station located on Big Creek east of the Agate Beach Wayside on Oceanview Drive is currently overflowing into Big Creek. One of motors for the two pumps failed and needs to be rebuilt. The earliest date that the pump is expected to be returned to service is January 8th. Because of the forecast of continued rain for the next several days, it is expected this station will continually overflow.
City crews are making arrangements to have a diesel skid pump brought in until the motor can be repaired. Hopefully the overflow can be eliminated with the addition of this pump.
Signs warning of the sewage overflows are posted at the affected areas. Contact with water contaminated with bacteria can increase the risk of disease. Please avoid contact with these waterbodies until further notice. Please contact Public Works at 541-574-3366 with any questions.
