The Story of the Clackamas River

The Clackamas River has been the source of our drinking water for more than 50 years. We work tirelessly to protect the river and its watershed. You can help. The first step is simply to getting to know your river. This is an informative, 18-minute video of the history and importance of the Clackamas River, created in partnership by The City of Lake Oswego, The Clackamas River Water Providers, and Clackamas River Water.

National Preparedness Month – September 2017

Disasters Don’t Plan Ahead. You Can.

We should all take action to prepare! We are all able to help first responders in our community by training how to respond during an emergency and what to do when disaster strikes — where we live, work, and visit. The goal of National Preparedness Month (NPM) is to increase the overall number of individuals, families, and communities that engage in preparedness actions at home, work, business, school, and place of worship.

What To Do If a Frozen Pipe Bursts

There’s a cold snap coming in, check out our helpful tips on how to winterize your home plumbing, but if it just so happens that cold snap causes a pipe in your home to burst follow these steps:

Frozen Pipe

  • Close your main water shut-off valve to your house. Most shutoff valves are located where the water line enters the house, either at the front of your house where youconnect your hose, or basement near the hot water heater, or inside the garage.
  • Turn off the water heater. Locate the dedicated shut-off valve on the cold water inlet.
  • Remember, the repair of broken pipes on the customer’s side of the meter is the customer’s responsibility. Contact a plumber for repair work.
