**UPDATE** Division St. Pump Station

**UPDATE** 3:00 pm Monday:  Crews have been working on the repair since 9:00 am this morning, after having to wait for other utilities to locate their services.  They are still rounding up needed parts.  Crews are taking a break until later this afternoon/evening when things cool down a bit.  Outlook is the repair will be completed tonight, the glue will set overnight and the water will come back on sometime Tuesday am.

 

Properties in south Irrigon served by the Division Street Pump Station have been out of water since Saturday evening when a line blew.

Crews are on site this morning (Monday, 7/9) working on the repair.  No word yet on when the repair will be completed and the water will be turned back on.

Updates will be posted as they are known.

If you have any questions, please call the office at 541-922-3814.
