Not all Cape Meares residents are able to hike up to the location where the water tank for the community was formerly located. In case you are curious as to what the area now looks like, take a look at the recent picture that was taken.
Also, for the curious who may have wondered what the surface was below the tank, be advised that it was a fine gravel. There was a concrete ring around the outside of the tank with gravel placed inside the ring.
The community “dodged a bullet” with respect to the tank failing before a replacement was built to supply drinking water to the community.
