September 28, 2015 – Backyard burning postponed

The ban on backyard burning in Lane County will continue through October. Historically, backyard burn season opens October 1, but this year the Lane County Fire Defense Board decided to keep the season closed until November 1. The board decided to postpone the burn season until November due to the fire danger and lack of rainfall. The fire chiefs say they are confident that there will be more rainfall in October, allowing burn season to open in November. Officials say it is still the responsibility of the individual to call the LRAPA open burn line after November 1 to make sure it is a burn day and not cancelled for air quality standards.

May 6, 2015 – Water Emergency Update.

On May 4th, the City of Westfir was able to provide documentation to the state water master that verified a senior water right held by the city, which is dated 1924. The right had been transferred from the original Western Lumber company rights down through the years, and eventually to the city. The water master lifted the restriction on Westfir’s water rights after reviewing the documents.

The outdoor watering restriction has been lifted, however, due to low river levels we are still in a state of emergency. City Council stated that the water emergency is still in place, due to the low river level, and the fact that our intake screen is already above the water level. The city is still facing potential shortages and possible future restrictions due to the intake.

The city is respectfully asking for voluntary reductions and conservation. Please water during evening and early morning hours only, avoid washing cars, and continue to be water conscious. Thanks for your patience and understanding.

Yours Sincerely,
Mayor Matt Meske

May 1, 2015 – Free Water saving products.

The City has secured a generous donation to help households reduce their water usage, and lower their bills. The City is able to provide residents with a pressure compensated faucet aerator and shower head free of charge.

The .5 gallon per minute pressure compensating faucet aerator saves the average family of four 18,000 gallons of water per year. The 1.5 gallon per minute pressure compensating shower head saves around 5,600 gallons of water per year.

Because the adjustable 9-jet massage shower head is pressure regulated, it still has adequate flow, and actually maintains the pressure you are accustomed to, while saving water and money.

The first shipment will be arriving soon, if you are interested in the free products, please call or stop by. I will be making a list of names and distributing the products as they arrive. One of each product per household.

April 14, 2015 – City declares water emergency.

The Westfir City Council declared a water emergency during an Emergency City Council meeting on April 13, 2015.
The emergency declaration is threefold; due to a low river level, a senior water right limiting the City’s ability to deliver water, and the potential for a “Domestic Water Use” shortage at the intake level, in the near future.
On April 10, 2015 the State Water Master for Region 2 informed the City of water use restrictions imposed by the senior water rights holder. Therefore, the senior water rights holder and the City Council are limiting all Municipal Water users to “Domestic Water Use” only, until further notice.
“Domestic Water Use “only, prohibits all outdoor irrigation, car washing, filling of pools or hot tubs, and other outdoor uses. “Domestic Water Use” means the use of water for human consumption, household purposes, domestic animal consumption that is ancillary to residential use of the property or related accessory uses.
It is anticipated that the duration of the emergency will be an extended period of time; up to and including the summer months of 2015. The emergency exists for all citizens connected to the Municipal Water system, until the emergency declaration is lifted.
City Council is working hard to insure that the city continues to have a supply of “Domestic Water” for residents, but it is imperative that residents take their own steps in the mandatory restrictions on irrigation, and outdoor uses, and voluntary reductions inside the home.
Future notifications, information and restrictions will be posted, and made available publicly.

Yours Sincerely,
Mayor Matt Meske
