Notice of NW 48th Street and Schooner Creek Pump Station Overflows
Due to mechanical failure of one of the pumps in the morning of January 17th, the NW 48th Street Wastewater Pump Station located on west of Highway 101 at NW 48th Street overflowed into the creek located at Lucky Gap. One of motors for the two pumps failed as a result of plugging with debris. In order to fix the pump it was necessary to shut down the Schooner Creek Wastewater Pump Station located at the end of NW 68th Street. Schooner Creek Pump Station also overflowed into the ocean.
Both stations were returned to service around 6 pm.
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.
