Update: Milaukie Public Works crews wrapped up the Water Line Flushing Program ahead of schedule before noon on Thursday, July 14, 2011. Water Supervisor Mike Clark wants to thank Milwaukie residents for the patience, understanding, and cooperation that was on full display during the eight days of work.
Now that the program has been completed, the pipes are clear of sediment and the potential of future brown water incidents has been dramatically reduced. The budget City Council passed in June included an increase in utility rates that helps fund these kinds of proactive efforts that protect and improve the City’s infrastructure.
