Toledo public works crews strengthened the town’s water intake system on the Siletz River which had been undermined on the bank by eddy currents that scoured out the intake’s support structure. You could actually see lots of daylight between some of the structure and the bank. Crews set up forms and poured cement into the void and let it set. Toledo Public Works Director Adam Denlinger says they’ll monitor the situation closely all winter long as river flows rise, reflecting the rainy season.
Denlinger said much more work needs to be done on the intake system that will be performed in the near future.
