Water Emergency in Cape Meares


At approximately noon. on Saturday, October 1, reports were received of low or no water pressure from Cape Meares community residents.  The Oceanside Water District was contacted and discovered that the water reservoir for the community was empty.

Efforts are underway to locate and repair the breach that emptied the tank.

There is a “boil water” advisory that will remain in place until the break is located and repaired and the boil advisory is rescinded.

Attempts have been made to supply emergency drinking water to residents unable to drive to Tillamook to purchase their own.  If you are planning on visiting the Cape Meares community, be aware of the water issue and please bring your own!

Emergency drinking water is available to community residents at the local Cape Meares Community Center.  Contact the OWD if you are unable to obtain supplies for your personal use.
