Floods & High Water

The annual flooding & high water preparedness brochure should be arriving in your mailboxes very soon. The brochure is also online at the link below. It is worth remembering that our last major flood event, in April 2019, took place during a period with only moderate rainfall. The cause of the flood in 2019 was action taken by flood control managers upstream to release pressure on dams and reservoirs, resulting in localized flooding that covered Highway 34 just east of Corvallis.

More resources and preparedness tips are available at the link.

Whoa - here's something you don't see every day. Thanks to City of Corvallis Police Department and Corvallis Fire for sharing this important info.

In connection with the crash involving the Tesla, the Corvallis Police Department and Corvallis Fire Department want to make the community aware of potentially hazardous batteries in the area of the NW Walnut and NW Fairlawn.

During the crash, the Tesla car broke apart causing hundreds of small batteries, which power the vehicle to spread across the area. A concerted effort was made to collect as many of the batteries as possible at the time of the crash, but we received reports of the batteries actually going through windows of nearby residences because of the crash.

The public needs to be aware that the batteries:

Can reportedly stay hot to the touch for up to 24 hours and could cause burns if handled.

Can release toxic fumes that may harm people and animals if inhaled.

Can leak substances that may harm people and animals if they are exposed.

Please see the attached images of the batteries so you are familiar with what they look like. If you find one of these batteries, please contact the Corvallis Regional Communication Center at 541-766-6911 and do not touch the battery. Corvallis Fire Department personnel will respond to collect the battery for proper disposal.

Hello City of Corvallis. This picture was taken today at approximately 0920, and is in front of Fire Station #3, on Circle Blvd. See those leaves? The nice employee at the fire department told me they were placed there by CITY employees. In the bike lane. IN THE BIKE LANE. Isn't there a city ordinance stating not to block the bike lane with leaves? The fire department employee told me yes, they know it is a problem, but made no move the fix it. How can we get local residents and landscape folks to follow our ordinances if we cannot get City employees to do so?
This evening I made an effort to spend money at a local restaurant in Corvallis, to give some of my hard earned money back to the community. I parked on first street in spot # 46 and walked my overworked body over to the single parking meter half a block away. I brought 3 dimes and a quarter. I followed the orders shined at my eyes from the fancy digital screen before me, and like oft times before it rejected my coins and begged me to stick my card deep inside of it. I hesitated. Then I begrudgingly jammed my chip into the slot. The machine refused to take my money. I then shrugged and walked away and into the diner. Less than an hour later a ticket was bequeathed upon my newish windshield of my truck, which I purchased at Bob's glass in Corvallis. I now get to deal with a situation, which really pisses me off. I won't be paying that ten dollars. You can absolutely go *%&^ yourselves. With love for my community, Carson Wille.
To the men and women of the Corvallis Police Department.... Thank you for all your hard work and for keeping our town of Corvallis a safe place to live and work.....we respect your tireless efforts and time. Thank you very very much Jan Sharp and Patricia Moore
we would like to volunteer to help people in need in the Benton/Linn County areas who have been devastated by recent fires. We are new here and just don't know where to start...can someone please suggest some organizations that need physical assistance? We can help with anything from grocery-getting to physical labor. Thank you!
What is the Corvallis Fire department doing to keep the wildfires in Lincoln City from reaching us here? Are they and the Philomath Fire department over at the coast helping to put the fires out? I would Hope so!
Can we stop taking out healthy trees? What did they think was going to happen with the sidewalk?
Can someone tell me when playgrounds will open? It’s extremely frustrating to not have a place to take young children to play, especially when so many other things are opening.
We cannot have their voices silenced for their movement that we support. We need to use hashtags that represent what we are going to do now and forever to support them. #hashtagawareness #endwhitesilence #endwhiteviolence #endwhitesupremacy #eliminateracism
A big thank you to all the wonderful people that responded when I called about my elderly neighbor falling. You guys were great!!!!!!!!
#BikeMonth submission
What is the official status of going for a walk, jogging, and or riding your bike for exercise? Is it allowed to do these things without fear of a walking ticket? Can we walk around the High School track. Obviously we would not want to contact others, but this is a great way to get our exercise in and some fresh air.
