The City of Sodaville Water Utility and the City of Sodaville City Council are placing water restrictions on outside watering. Water Restriction Rates will apply and enforcement will start as of 09/11/2020.
No outside water use includes:
No watering of lawns.
No sprinklers or underground drip systems.
No filling of swimming pools.
No washing of cars, decks, buildings, sidewalks etc.
Watering of gardens willnot be restricted
Due to this years lack of adequate rainfall and continued hot and dry conditions the City’s wells are at extremely low conditions and the rate of customer usage is greater than the City’s water production.
The City’s priority is to supply all of its residents with water for bathing, cooking and drinking during this restriction, and to reduce water usage to winter months’ averages until the rainy season begins again and refills the aquifers.
All other water conservation will be greatly appreciated.
If you have any water concerns or problems please let us know by calling Public Works Director Stan Smith at 541-401-8537 or City Administrator Judy Smith at City Hall 541-258-8882 or cell 541-905-2590.
This is a NO TOLERANCE ORDER. City Resolution #03-01 in accordance with Ordinance #15-02 allows the City of Sodaville Water Utility to impose a penalty for unauthorized use. This penalty is $500.00 per offence plus water used and will be enforced.
“The City of Sodaville is an equal opportunity provider and employer”
General Descriptions for the Three Evacuation Levels and Necessary Actions by Residents:
LEVEL I (1)
EVACUATION or PROTECTION ALERT: A wildfire threat is in your area. It would be wise to consider planning and/or packing, in the event an evacuation becomes necessary.
LEVEL II (2)
EVACUATION WARNING or NOTICE: High probability of a need to evacuate.
You should prepare now by packing necessary items and preparing your family, pets, and vehicle for potential departure. Remember the 6- P’s:
1. A plan for the persons in your family (including a meeting place.)
2. Personal items (including toiletries, food and water for 2-3 days and special personal possessions.)
3. Prescriptions- Have your full, current supply of prescriptions packed.
4. Photographs (and other mementos) which cannot be replaced.
5. Pets (Have a plan in place and pets secured so frightened pets don’t escape fenced yards or kennels.)
6. Papers- Pack all important papers, including reference phone numbers, account numbers, etc.
Now is the time to move persons with mobility or medical issues.
If you have livestock or large animals, please move them to a safe place now!
Please use common sense and evacuate at any time you feel uncomfortable or see active fire behavior.
LEVEL III (3)
EVACUATION REQUEST or ORDER: Occupants of the affected area(s) are asked to leave within a specified time period, by pre-designated route(s). Perimeter roadblocks are typically established. At this stage:
You should take your family, pets, and necessary items including medications and important papers and evacuate now if you are in a Level III area.
Check in with your local Red Cross shelter (even if you don’t intend to stay there). Check in with them and let them know where you will be in case your family is looking for you.
Drive with your lights on, safely and SLOWLY remaining aware of your surroundings as you leave.
Sodaville has been trying for something like 3 yrs to complete the fence around the Sport court. We have all the prep work DONE! I am sooo excited to see this about finished, you have No Idea. Huge thanks goes to the local missionaries from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints who came to spend 5+ hours painting the fence poles! They totally blew me away. Mayor Suzie Hibbert

She announced a ban on indoor gatherings of more than 10 people.

During times of uncertainty, our residents will look to us for leadership and guidance. While the City of Sodaville does not provide public health services like Linn County or the State of Oregon, we do provide other critical services that residents rely upon. Here are a few things to remember that will help us fulfill our role as public servants:
Take care of yourselves and your family. Specifically, wash your hands frequently and try to avoid hand contact with your face and eyes as much as possible. Also, remember to cover your sneezes and coughs.
Use sick leave and other leave when appropriate. If you become symptomatic, please err on the side of caution and use your provided sick leave or other leave types to stay home. This will not only allow you to stay at home to rest and recover, but is also courteous to other employees and community members.
