Howdy all Friends of Tideman Johnson,

We had a great group last month and put the major hurt on some invasive blackberry and ivy. Why stop now?

This Saturday we’re going to focus on removing invasives between the boardwalk and the creek and headed east from there. All this is prep work for our big planting event next March.

Saturday December 3rd, 9am – noon
Tideman Johnson Park
Meet up at the boardwalk
Tools and refreshments provided

This is our last work party of 2016. We’ll take a month off to lounge about in January and then our next get-together is February 4th.

We hope to see you out there!

Marianne
Friends of Tideman Johnson

City Repairing Water Main Break on SE Boyd

Milwaukie Public Works crew is on SE Boyd St. to repair a water main break, according to a tweet sent by City of Milwaukie. The city expects to have the work completed by 3:00 p.m.

BOIL WATER ALERT

From City of Milwaukie:

The city has issued a boil water notice for all Milwaukie water customers. The results of recent water samples tested positive for E.coli and total coliform bacteria.The samples were taken at the start of the city’s connection to Portland’s water supply as a way to maintain pressure in Milwaukie’s system during repairs to the elevated tank at SE 40th Avenue and Harvey Street. However, at this time, the boil water notice is not in effect for Portland water customers.

The city shut down its connection to the outside water supply as soon as it received the sampling results and began flushing the system.

Residents should not drink any water without boiling it first. Bring all water to a boil for at least one minute and cool before using. Using bottled water is encouraged.  Boiled or bottled water should be used for drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes and all food preparation until further notice. Ice or any beverages prepared with unboiled tap water on or after Nov. 9 should be discarded.

The results from a follow-up round of testing are expected back at noon on Friday, Nov. 11. The city will provide an update once these results are returned, as well as any further instructions, if needed.

Water contamination can occur for a number of reasons. The city is currently looking into the cause of the contamination and will provide updates as they are known.

E. coli can cause diarrhea, cramps, nausea, headaches, or other symptoms. It poses an increased health risk for infants, young children, and people with compromised immune systems. These symptoms are not caused by E. coli alone. If you experience any of these symptoms, consider seeking medical advice from your health care provider.
