Water Contact Advisory

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

disinfection of effluent from approximately 2:00 am on Thursday January 28 until 8:00am Friday January 29th. The valve 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.

For more information contact the City of Newport Public Works at 541-574-3371 .
