Salmon Valeey Water System in Welches Oregon

by Liz Warren

If you're in the Salmon Valley Water district you may or may not be aware of a pending sale of the water system. It looks like Northwest Natural Gas Company has struck a deal with the water company in December 2017. The sale should be completed no sooner than 60 days from their agreement and must be approved by the Public Utility Commission of Oregon. It may have already happened by the time this is posted. Here is a link to their website for additional information.

by Liz Warren

Recently released stats for February by RMLS show only 43 active listings for sale. Inventory is the word of the day for the mountain. This is the greatest seller's market I've seen in over 10 years. Priced right and in demand properties usually have multiple offers within a day. If you're a seller and on the fence, now is the time to have your property on the market.

Resort at the Mountain Bell Ringing Event March 11, 2018 Welches, Oregon

Here are details right from the Clackamas County website:

Project Description: Replace the existing one-lane bridge with a new two-lane bridge. The current bridge, built in 1958, is reaching the end of its functional life and is weight-limited.  The 18-month construction  project includes building a temporary detour bridge, removing the old bridge, building the new bridge and then removing the detour bridge.

Things to be aware of:

  • Trees are being removed early to avoid any conflicts with nesting birds.
  • Work in the water is limited by law to strict time periods (known as the “in-water work window”), generally 6 weeks during the summer
  • There may be delays of up to 20 minutes, but no complete closure is scheduled.  If there is a need for a closure of longer than 20 minutes, area residents will be notified at least 24 hours in advance and accommodations will be made for emergency vehicles, as needed.


  • $2.9 million -- Federal Highway Administration Highway Bridge Replacement and Rehabilitation Program
  • $330,000 -- County Road Fund

You may be interested to know:

  • The bridge is a critical life line for residents, as this is the sole access to several homes
  • The bridge is considered structurally deficient and functionally obsolete.
  • The bridge has three spans (100-foot steel pony truss and two timber approach spans).
