Enhancing water quality in the Siletz River: Drinking water for Siletz, Newport & Toledo

Reducing sedimentation from human activity into the Siletz River - subject of a study to be presented Aug 20, 7pm, Siletz Library

Reducing sedimentation from human activity into the Siletz River – subject of a study to be presented Aug 20, 7pm, Siletz Library

Although Oregon state forestry rules require careful construction of logging roads and timber harvesting to minimize mud and soil run off into nearby rivers and streams, the runoff, although considerably improved, still continues which affects drinking water supplies for Newport, Toledo and Siletz which take their water from the Siletz River. Water quality experts also say that excessive sediment in the river, especially after large winter storms, also damages fish habitat.

To pinpoint runoff sites, the Lincoln Soil and Water Conservation District launched a study of such sources and will be presenting their findings at a free public meeting coming up Tuesday, August 20th at the Siletz Library.

Conservation staff say that soil runoff comes not only from logged areas but also from home, commercial and road construction, agricultural activities and where urban activity disturbs ground cover.

The study results will be presented at the meeting and public comment and suggestions are welcome. Staff remarks about placing new water river monitoring equipment will also be given and how data from such monitoring will help protect water intake and treatment facilities feeding the city of Toledo.
