Lincoln City sewage release notification

City of Lincoln City
From December 5, 2023 at 2:00p.m. to December 6, 2023 at 2:00a.m., diluted sewage
was released to Devils Lake at the Holmes Road Boat Ramp.

According to a press release from the city the release was due to
heavy rain fall over a long period of time.

The estimated amount of overflow is 3,600 gallons.

The Holmes Road sewer pump station and Public Works’ crews worked continuously, however could not keep up with the non-stop heavy rainfall.

This year’s adopted budget includes funding to upgrade the Holmes Road Pump Station and increase its pumping capacity.

“We are currently in the design phase of this project. In addition, the City is currently in the design and/or construction phases for several other projects that will reduce our current Inflow and Infiltration (I&I) rates (rain water that enters the sewer collection system piping).”

The City notified appropriate personnel at Oregon Emergency Response and the
Department of Environmental Quality. The affected area is posted and we have notified
the Media.
