Riverbend Boil Water Notice Lifted

 Attention Riverbend water users:

In consultation with the Oregon Health Authority Drinking Water Program, we are happy to inform you that the water in the Riverbend Water System (PWS 41-00601) has been declared safe to drink again.

To reach this point, substantial effort and investment have been put into designing and constructing an underground contact chamber. Additionally, continuous automated monitoring equipment has been installed that will ensure adequate disinfection is sufficiently achieved on a continuous basis to meet the interim treatment requirements instituted by the Oregon Health Authority. This is only the first step, however. In order to achieve full compliance with the water treatment laws of Oregon, we are in the process of designing an ultrafiltration surface water treatment plant that we expect to construct during 2022. The work that has been completed so far will be integrated into the future surface water treatment plant.

Thank you to everyone for your patience throughout this process. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our office toll-free at 855-554-8333 or email us at
