Oregon National Guard Christmas Tree

This year, the City of Island City sponsored, decorated and dedicated the tree that is in the foyer at the Blue Mt. Conference for the Oregon National Guard. As the Community uses the Conference Center, we urge you to be sure to say “Thank You” to all those men and women who serve in the Military. Be sure to Thank the families as well!!!! IMG_4836

Hydrant Flushing

The Island City Public Works Department will once again conduct the Fall Fire Hydrant testing and maintenance from OCTOBER 7 -11 and OCTOBER 14-18, 2013. This is necessary to ensure adequate water volume and pressure for fire suppression, to ensure fire hydrants are functioning properly, to rid the city’s water distribution system of accumulations of sediment, and to detect any potential problems with the water system.
If you should detect any discoloration or sediment, let an outside faucet or cold-water bathtub faucet run until the discoloration clears. When clearing your lines, it is a good idea to remove the aerators from your faucets prior to running the water to prevent them from clogging and water pressure. PLEASE check for water discoloration prior to washing clothes. The entire system will be flushed and the discoloration should only last a short time. We are sorry for the inconvenience, but hydrant flushing must be performed twice a year. If you should detect any problem with water quality, please call the City Office at 541.963.5017
