This week the Clarks Branch Water Association board contracted S&D Construction to remove a group of trees between the Dole Road pump house and river intake pipe. All the debris was hauled off and we’ll work to keep it clear. The pump house was previously damaged from a fallen tree and this work will prevent that from happening again.
Chris Bingham, board president, took time to clean the inside of the pump house in preparation for an inspection by the Oregon Health Authority. The inspection was postponed because of COVID-19 but everything is in order to pass. The board is working towards rebuilding the pump house and are in the works to get a catwalk attached to the outside of the structure before fire season.
