EMERGENCY WATER SITUATION in the Park
There is most likely a large leak in the park, however it would be very difficult to determine where that leak might be because of the rain.
PLEASE ABSOLUTELY STOP USING WATER FOR THE REST OF THE DAY. STOP ALL CHORES, LITERALLY TRY TO NOT TO USE WATER FOR THE TIME BEING. The tanks need to refill.
Take a look around your property and street to see if there is unusual water coming down the street or bubbling up through cracks that you did not notice before.
TALK TO YOUR NEIGHBORS, SPREAD THE WORD.
Sorry for the bad news, but the community needs to work together to get the tanks refilled.
We are all fatigued from these storms, but hopefully, tonight’s storm will be the last for a while.
We will send another notice when we have more information.
Chemeketa Park Community Members:
Please be aware of a fallen tree heading down Comanche Trail at the first big curve past Nez Perce Trail. The redwood is currently resting on the communication and high voltage wires and could pose a risk to safety. PG&E Emergency Line has been contacted and notified of the situation and will be sending an emergency crew ASAP. We will update the community as soon as possible on the situation and repair.
Please click on the link below to take you to the Monthly Board Meeting Minutes. We post the minutes so that each of us has access to the latest information in regards to our water, our roads, and our Park in general. Enjoy.
As the pitter patter of raindrops begins to fall on our rooftops, this is a quick reminder that during rainstorms such as this will be, we MUST CONSERVE WATER. It sounds contra-intuitive, but we cannot process water during rainstorms because of the turbidity. Which means we will NOT be producing water all week from Moody Gulch. If we don't conserve enough, we must purchase water from SJW.
So….PLEASE REDUCE YOUR WATER USE for the next week. We expect rain tonight, Monday, through tomorrow, Tuesday. Then we have more coming Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.
Thank you for your support. Living in these beautiful mountains also necessitates being responsible stewards of our environment.
Happy New Year!
UPDATE: Mandatory Water Conservation on 12/18/22
Water leak is possibly found.
Please continue to CONSERVE through ALL OF MONDAY, 12/19/22, in order to let tanks recover.
Thank you for passing this message on to all of your neighbors.
