Failed Pump Causes Water Contact Advisory In Newport

Due to a failed pump, the Newport Wastewater Treatment Plant did not provide sufficient

disinfection of effluent from approximately 6:55pm on Sunday April 18th until 8:08am Monday

April 19, 2021. The pump has been addressed and the plant is providing effective disinfection

again. A health hazard warning sign has been posted at Don Davis Park, near the affected area and sampling is being conducted to determine when the water is safe for contact. Contact with water contaminated with bacteria can increase the risk of disease. Please avoid contact with these waterbodies until further notice.
