A major water distribution main has broken on Oceania, along The Bayshore just across Alsea Bay from Waldport. The break is being repaired and a 6pm fix time is predicted.
Water District Manager Adam Denlinger says the repair will only be temporary. This latest break has convinced him that the entire 2,000 feet of water main, installed back in the late 50s early 60s, requires replacement. Plans are moving ahead to do just that.
