Pendleton, Ore. — From the Bureau of Reclamation, the current rate of release is 1100 cfs and will gradually be adjusted to 800 cfs by the end today. The agency will maintain monitoring flows as they continue to watch the weather pattern upstream.
An additional dumpster is available at the parking lot at Community Park off SW 37th, other dumpsters are available at the North end of SW 41st Street and SW 44th Street for residents to disburse of household items and debris. Hazardous items should not be taken to these stations.
Sandbags are being accepted at the sandbag station located at the South end of Les Schwab. Please do not place sandbags in the street as we do not want them blocking the water flow in gutters or along the street. A volunteer group is being put together to help gather bags next week and information will be shared upon implementation.
Pedestrian Bridges access remains closed and should not be used.
Community Park will remain closed to residents, as a precaution as the ground remains soft and muddy.
