Chemeketa Park’s water filtration system (“waterboy”) will be undergoing significant refurbishment and maintenance beginning Monday, May 14th through Friday, May 20th. During this timeframe, there will be no water production!
This necessary maintenance will require extreme water usage cuts for all Chemeketa Park residents by 40%.
We will need to seriously conserve before, during and after this period of time to allow for adequate pre-event water storage, and then replenishment of water system storage.
Therefore, we need all residents to stop all outside water usage, including automatic irrigation systems effective this Thursday, May 10th and continue that conservation until about May 24st. Also, it will be necessary to reduce inside water usage by 40%, to prevent the expensive use of San Jose Water Company’s Montevina Pipeline. We will keep the community updated via Nextdoor and the Chemeketa Park website (visit at chemeketapark.org)
Here is a summary:
- Water filtration system refurbishment and maintenance
- Conservation efforts need to begin no later than Thursday, May 10 and possibly go through Tuesday, May 22.
- 40% reduction of inside water usage
- No outside water usage, including automatic irrigation systems
- Start water reduction early so adequate pre-event water supply is high
- Continue water reduction after the system is back online so as to replenish water system storage
Plan ahead this week to water plants and do laundry. Then hold off until the refurbishment is complete and water resources have been replenished.

There is a new Brush Chipping procedure, due to a series of difficulties with our past chipping program. The FireSafe Council has asked Chemeketa Park to try their new format.
Drive up & Drop Off
Location still the same.
Bring your material to be chipped to the playground. There will be a chipping crew waiting to chip your brush.
All of the previous guidelines are still in effect. The chipping crew won’t chip material that isn’t within the guide lines!
The Drive Up and Drop Off Chipping Program
