Poop issues continue....



PRESS RELEASE

DATE: September 26, 2022

TOPIC: Sanitary Sewer Overflow Due to Vandalism, Warning Signs Still Posted

CONTACT: Public Works Department (541) 296-5401

FOR RELEASE: IMMEDIATELY


On Friday September 23, 2022, a City of The Dalles Wastewater Collection crew conducted a routine weekly inspection at the manhole at the 9th Street Bridge over Mill Creek. They found the lock had been broken and vandals had thrown rocks and concrete pieces into the manhole, causing a plugged sewer pipe. Sewage overflowed directly into Mill Creek and into the Columbia River. The sewer pipe was cleared and the pipe was repaired on Friday. No more sewage is overflowing.

Out of an abundance of caution, signs will remain in place at locations of public river access on the Oregon shore of the Columbia River, from The Dalles Riverfront Park to West Mayer Park boat launch. The signs say: “Warning - Contaminated Water - No water contact” and give phone numbers to call for information. These signs will remain in place at least one more day.

The next status update will be through a press release that is scheduled to be sent by noon on Tuesday September 27, 2022.

For information about Washington shore public river access, contact the Klickitat County Health Department at (509) 493-1558.

The Department is in communication with the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality and local health department officials to coordinate response. Questions can be directed to the Public Works Department office at (541) 296-5401.

For updates go to the City website thedalles.org

The rainy season is soon approaching and so the downstream migration and spawning of the brown-backed corn trout will be upon us. Keep your mouth closed should you fall in the river. Razz Very Happy

i've said it before, and might as well again.
For a state that claims to be 'green', there sure is a lot of sh%t in the rivers around here..... unfortunately, literally.

CITY OF THE DALLES
Department of Public Works
1215 West 1st Street
The Dalles, Oregon 97058





PRESS RELEASE


DATE: September 29, 2022

TOPIC: Sanitary Sewer Overflow Returned to Compliance

CONTACT: Public Works Department (541) 296-5401

FOR RELEASE: IMMEDIATELY


Water quality testing conducted at three locations near the 9th Street Bridge over Mill Creek show that conditions have returned to normal for this time of year. Please be aware that Mill Creek is posted with “No Trespassing” signs year-around throughout The Dalles to allow for undisturbed fish spawning.

Signs which were placed at locations of public river access on the Oregon shore of the Columbia River, to warn of contaminated water, were taken down this afternoon.

On Friday September 23, 2022, a City of The Dalles Wastewater Collection crew conducted a routine weekly inspection at the manhole at the 9th Street Bridge over Mill Creek. They found the lock had been broken and vandals had thrown rocks and concrete pieces into the manhole, causing a plugged sewer pipe. Sewage overflowed directly into Mill Creek and into the Columbia River. The sewer pipe was cleared and the pipe was repaired on the day the problem was found. No more sewage is overflowing. Out of an abundance of caution signs were posted on the Columbia River to allow adequate time for the spill to dissipate during a season of low flows in the creek.

The Department is in communication with the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality and local health department officials to coordinate demobilization. Questions can be directed to the Public Works Department office at (541) 296-5401.
