Area residents invited to look over plans for new Big Creek Dam…

Upper Big Creek Dam

The city of Newport is inviting citizens to get up to speed on plans to replace the upper Big Creek Dam before Mother Nature throws another sizeable earthquake us.  Geologists say the current dam, in no way will survive the kind of quake that geologists predict will occur within the next 50 to 100 years.  The last one was in January of 1700 witnessed mainly by Native Americans.  Very few European settlers had made it this far west.

Newport Public Works Director Tim Gross, among others, will go over the broad outline of a new dam they want to construct. The new site is just downstream a bit from the current upper Big Creek Dam. It’s where the canyon narrows and would likely be able to survive a very strong earthquake.

The meeting is set for Monday night, April 29th, 6pm. It’ll be held at the Newport Water Treatment plant at 2810 NE Big Creek Road. From Highway 101, turn east on NE 31st. Then turn right (south) onto Harney. Then take a left (east) onto Big Creek Road. Almost immediately you’ll turn right (south) at the water treatment plant sign – a long gravel road to the water treatment plant. Plenty of parking.
