There are a number of small water systems in the county (mainly in Mt Hood/Hwy 26 area) that have issued boil water notices due to pressure losses and power outages. Go here https://www.clackamas.us/news/2020-09-15/boil-water-advisory-issued-for-areas-of-clackamas-county to see which water systems have been impacted.

The fires in Clackamas County have resulted in increased water demands in some of the more rural areas of Clackamas River Water. Your water continues to be safe and CRW is keeping up with demands. However, we are asking residents to curtail any unnecessary use of water, so it is available for fire response. Your reduction in water use will enable the Clackamas River Water Providers to send more water to areas that are heavily impacted by the fires. Thank you.
We have been experiencing higher than normal water demands due to wildfire suppression activities. This has put a strain on some portions of our water system resulting in a few leaks in some of the more rural areas of our district. Thank you for your patience as we address these needs and respond to leaks. For wildfire information, you are encouraged to go to: www.clackamas.us/wildfires
