Please Conserve Water from Friday, March 29th through Wednesday, April 3rd

Chemeketa Park Residents

PLEASE CONSERVE WATER FOR THE NEXT 4-5 DAYS due to major weather event beginning today, Friday, March 29th. The rain is forecast to be heaviest today (Friday) and tomorrow (Saturday). But then it will take a few days to get caught up on water storage.

Again, it sounds counter-intuitive when there is so much rain, but Chemeketa Park Mutual Water Company cannot pump water from our source during rain events. The water has too much “turbidity”. It’s brown and dirty. So, we have to purchase water from San Jose Water Company.

The issue is….we cannot pump as much water when we are on the Montevina Pipeline (San Jose Water) so our supply is more limited. Our water storage cannot keep up unless we CONSERVEThe good news is: no laundry till next week. ;)

Thank you for understanding. Be prepared and stay safe.

Thank you.
