FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
 
CITY OF ASHLAND WASTEWATER TREATMENT PLANT
Disruptions to Ashland Pond Primary Access Path/Walking Trail, March 14, 2022
March 11, 2022
 
City of Ashland, OR The primary access path to Ashland Pond and the walking trail along the west embankment of the pond will be closed for several hours during the morning of March 14, 2022.  The temporary closure will occur while the City removes burned brush in preparation upcoming construction to relocate the outfall of the Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP). Trail users will continue to have access to the footpath located north of the primary access trail. The footpath is approximately parallel to the bank of Ashland Creek, and terminates at Ashland Pond.

Background: The outfall is the location where treated water from the WWTP is discharged into the creek. The City is being required to move the outfall of the WWTP from Ashland Creek to Bear Creek to comply with state and federal water quality regulations. Construction of the new outfall and pipe alignment is expected to begin in June 2022.

The City of Ashland will continue to inform the public and coordinate with stakeholders as more information becomes available regarding the actual construction schedule. More information will be available at www.ashland.or.us/healthycreeks, including updates on trail disruption dates.
