TIER 1 WATER USE CURTAILMENT (VOLUNTARY)
The City of Mosier is issuing a Tier 1 water use curtailment effective immediately and until further notice due to the Mosier Creek Wildfire.
Tier 1 curtailment is voluntary. This is a proactive measure designed to conserve water in the City’s storage tanks in the event of another power outage to prevent a water shortage or outage.
Tier 1 curtailment measures include: Do no use water for washing cars but feel free to water rooftops if needed. Reduce water use indoors if possible.
Wednesday, 6/18/20, City Council voted unanimously to extend Mosier’s State of Emergency until September 17th. Rock Creek Park will remain open to locals from the 97040 zip code with pedestrian access only. City offices and all other Mosier Parks will remain closed to the public, including the Mosier Plateau Trail. Please contact Jayme Bennett, City Recorder at firstname.lastname@example.org and Colleen Coleman, City Manager at email@example.com for questions regarding City business.
It was a tough decision, but given the recent uptick in Covid-19 cases, Council felt it best to keep the community safe. “We are a tiny community and care about your health and safety,” said the Mayor. “Therefore we have chosen to take special precautions during this uncertain time. Please take good care, wear masks, wash your hands, keep a safe distance, and be kind to one another. “
