Molalla River Drinking Water Listening Sessions

The Molalla River is a popular spot for recreation during the summer.

The Molalla River provides drinking water to approximately 26,000 people.

CANCELLATION NOTICE: PLEASE BE ADVISED

Due to concerns regarding novel Corona virus/COVID-19, Clackamas Soil and Water Conservation District (Clackamas SWCD) has decided to cancel both public meetings regarding Drinking Water Source Quality in the Molalla River Watershed.

  • March 17th at Cutsforth Market in Canby – cancelled
  • March 31st at the Molalla Adult Community Center – cancelled.

Public meetings may be rescheduled in the future if needed, but Clackamas SWCD is working on alternative methods of both sharing the materials that we planned to present and collecting public input. This will likely include an online video overview of the project and online forms for submitting comments.

Updates are available on the Molalla River Drinking Water Project website.

If you have questions or concerns, please contact Jason Faucera at [email protected] or by phone at 503-210-6013.

 

The Clackamas Soil and Water District (Clackamas SWCD) will be hosting TWO public listening sessions in March to gather input for the Molalla River Drinking Water Project.

These meetings are being held to gather information about the issues affecting drinking water source quality for the Molalla River. Approximately 26,000 people in Canby and Molalla get their drinking water from intakes on the Molalla River. Residents from Canby, Molalla, and Colton are invited to attend, as well as others who have questions or concerns about this issue.

Clackamas SWCD provides technical advice to landowners in Clackamas County to solve natural resource-related issues and is sponsoring the Molalla River Drinking Water Quality Project. Soil and water conservation districts are not regulatory entities. These special districts work with landowners on a voluntary basis to help them adopt more conservation-minded practices on their property.

The Molalla River Watershed provides water to residents in Colton, Molalla, and Canby.
