Hoodland long-term wastewater treatment effluent discharge study continues

Clackamas County Water Environment Services on behalf of Clackamas

CountyService District No. 1 (District) is exploring long-term alternatives

to discharge treated wastewater to the Sandy River due to the Hoodland

wastewatertreatment facility in Welches losing its outfall pipe during the

January 2011 flood. One of the areas being considered is a 5-acre,

county-owned parcel north ofEmigrant Trail.

In spring 2012, the District dug three test pits in this area. In fall 2012,

theDistrict installed three monitoring wells in the same area. In addition

to continuingtogather information from these wells, the District has

applied for a permit fromthe Division of State Lands to dig three additional

test pits. The additional test pitsare part of the on-going hydrologic studies

and not a part of any permanentconstruction project.

To keep informed of the District’s progress, visit website

for periodic updates. The District will keep you informed when a decision

is maderegarding thefeasibility of discharging treated effluent at Emigrant

Trail or another location. For more information about this research, please

New grant funding allows for expanded transit service on Mt. Hood

The Federal Lands Access Program has awarded $476,000 in new grant

funding for expanded transit service to Clackamas County, the Mt. Hood

National Forest, and the City of Sandy. The funding will help to expand

the Mt. Hood Express bus service to Government Camp, Timberline Lodge

and other locations on Mt. Hood, as well as Sandy Area Metro (SAM) bus



The successful award will allow the Mountain Express bus, operated by

Clackamas County, to increase its service to five scheduled runs daily, seven

days per week, and seven runs daily during the winter season. The grant

also adds bus service between Sandy and Gresham on Saturday mornings

and Sundays to provide connections to regional transit service.


"We know that transportation on Mt. Hood is extremely important for the

economy of our mountain communities," said Jim Bernard, County Commissioner.

"We are really excited about this grant because transportation resources are

important for seniors, people with disabilities, employees, and others who need

a safe and reliable way to get to work and services. The expanded service on the

mountain will be a big help," he continued.


The grant was awarded by the Federal Lands Access Program, a Federal grant

program that works to improve access to Federal lands, such as National Parks

and Forests. The grant was made possible with cooperation from local businesses

who have agreed to financially contribute to the project.


Support from partners such as Mt. Hood Ski Bowl, Timberline Lodge, and the

Resort at the Mountain have been critical in making the expansion possible. The

support of the Village at Mt. Hood has also been important.


Mt Hood National Forest has been a leader in promoting the expansion of public

transit options and has been the sponsoring organization for both this grant and

another recent grant for new vehicles for the Mountain Express.

The grant will be distributed over two years. In year one, the grant will provide

$230,000. In year two, the grant will provide $246,000. Earlier this year, The

Mountain Express bus service also received an additional $460,000 from the

Paul S. Sarbanes Transit In Parks grant program for new vehicles and equipment.

The new vehicles will include specialized equipment for transporting skis and snow

boards, mountain bikes and other types of recreational equipment.


Clackamas County will be holding a series of public meetings to discuss the expansion

of transit services on Mt. Hood. Please join us at one of the following public meetings

to get more information and provide your thoughts on stops and times of the expanded

Painting on Zig Zag River Bridge begins Aug. 12, 2013

Travelers will encounter around-the-clock lane closure

S&K Painting of Clackamas will remove rust and repaint the bridge

beams of the Zig Zag River Bridge on U.S. 26 (Mt. Hood Highway) at

milepost 43.8 west of Rhododendron. This work is needed to preserve

the bridge for years to come.

Traffic Impacts:

One right lane will remain closed in each direction during this work.

The contractor will place equipment and scaffolding in the closed lanes.

Travelers should expect minor delays through the work zone. One lane

in each direction will remain open at all times. Most of the work will

happen under the bridge out of the view of travelers using U.S. 26.

So, although you might not see workers, this is an active work zone.
