As of July 15, 2021, until further notice, the City of Molalla has issued a Stage 1 Water Alert for its customers due to ongoing drought conditions: https://www.cityofmolalla.com/publicworks/page/water-curtailment-alert-stage-1

Rescheduled: County Water Task Force:  MON AUG 23RD 10:00 – Noon. This public meeting will be held in person (location to be determined) hosted by Yamhill County Commissioner Casey Kulla.  It is intended to identify problems and brainstorm solutions regarding usage of water in our area.  We have requested this meeting also be available by Zoom.  Stay tuned for more info.

Per Casey, We will be dedicated to ground water discussion, centered around a presentation by Justin Iverson of Oregon Water Resources Dept. on groundwater quality and quantity, monitoring, water rights, the designations for different groundwater areas mean, and more. Please be prepared with questions, from “does my pond improve ground water supply?” to “can the county deny land use applications due to lack of water?” to “what recourse do I have if my well runs dry after others install new wells?”

Please consider carrying a fire extinguisher in your car.  This simple & easy task could save lives and a wildfire from spreading.  During last year’s Chehalem Mtn fire, a Resident on Neugebauer put out a grass fire with an extinguisher he had in the car.
