CANCELLED: Drinking Water Source Quality Public Presentation and Listening Session – Molalla, OR

Clackamas SWCD Seeks Input for Report on Drinking Water Source Quality Issues and Concerns

Molalla, OR:  Clackamas Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) will host a public presentation and listening session regarding drinking water source quality on Tuesday, March 31st from 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm at the Molalla Adult Community Center. Clackamas SWCD provides technical advice to landowners in Clackamas County to solve natural resource-related issues and is sponsoring the Molalla River Drinking Water Quality project.

The Molalla River Drinking Water Project is an effort to better understand issues affecting drinking water quality for approximately 26,000 people whose drinking water is drawn directly from the Molalla River.  Project sponsors are seeking input from members of the public about their perceptions of drinking water source quality and issues of concern. 

While the project focuses on water entering municipal intakes in City of Canby, City of Molalla, and the community of Colton, it assesses factors across the entire Molalla River watershed above the City of Canby’s water intake that have potential to impact drinking water source quality.

Using National Water Quality Initiative (NWQI) grant dollars from the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), Clackamas SWCD is pairing current and historic technical information with input from the public, land managers, agencies, and community organizations to tell the story of drinking water quality in the Molalla Watershed. The final report will describe where investment of resources will bring the biggest return for drinking water source quality protection and improvement.

Members of the public are invited to hear a short presentation about the project, after which individuals will be able to provide input.  Time will be managed to allow those who want to provide input to do so.

In order to ensure we have enough space for those interested in attending, we ask you to please RSVP by phone at 503-210-6000.  If we exceed capacity, we will hold a second meeting in Molalla.
