Cook Park Construction Begins This Month to Replace Aging Water Pipes
A portion of Clean Water Services’ West Durham Basin Improvement Program will take place at Cook Park beginning this month. The project will replace aging pipes that control water flow with larger, more resilient pipes and upgrade a pipeline that will improve wastewater capacity through 2040. Residents and park users can expect truck traffic, trail closures and detours through April 2019. Here's more information about the project.
Water pipes are keeping utility crews busy around the city
A recent series of broken pipes have been sending utility crews out to make repairs and keep the city’s water flowing. A cracked pipe on Village Glenn Drive dispatched staff to a 3 a.m. repair to a six-inch cast iron waterline. If you notice a problem with a water pipe, or any other public works issue, please let the city know by submitting a work request. If it is an urgent issue, please call 503-718-2591, Monday through Thursday, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. For issues that happen after-hours, dial 503-639-1554.
