Glenmorrie Water Co-Op Update April 20, 2017

To All Glenmorrie Water Co-Op Members:

The Glenmorrie Water Co-Op system had a power outage last night, April 19, that disabled the upper well pump and resulted in total depletion of the reservoir. Although we have a backup battery alert system that monitors the reservoir level, that system inexplicably failed, so our first awareness was from a call early this morning by a member with no water.

Accordingly, the power problem was immediately corrected and full water supply and pressure have been restored throughout the system. However, the initial refilling of the empty reservoir caused the agitation of some minor accumulated sediment so a small amount of cloudy water may be briefly evident before clearing. We have chlorinated the reservoir as a precaution so your water should be back to safe and totally normal conditions once any cloudiness clears. Note that it is very likely that no such cloudiness will even be evident.

We will be checking out the cause(s) for this incident and making the necessary corrections to assure your usual ongoing supply of clear, safe water. Coincidentally, we have been attempting to incorporate a more timely member alert system to immediately advise of any such incidents. If you are a newer Co-Op member or have never submitted the Emergency Contact Information form that was included in earlier 2016 water bills, please request same via a direct email to our system manager, Dick DeChaine, at, phone 503-310-1245.

Thank you,
Ed Hepp
Glenmorrie Water Co-Op Board Member

Marylhurst partition meeting set for April 18

Marylhurst University is submitting an application for a land partition for some of its property at the university’s current campus. A required meeting with the neighborhood has been scheduled for 6 p.m. Tuesday, April 18, in the Old Library Room of the BP John Administrative Building at Marylhurst. 

According to William Rasmussen, a partner with Miller Nash Graham & Dunn LLP, the firm preparing the partition for Marylhurst, there are no current plans for new construction on the campus. The university, he said in an email, is for the university to “have its options open in the future.”

Important meetings coming up

The city of Lake Oswego has scheduled several meetings to address topics that could impact residents in the Glenmorrie Neighborhood and other surrounding neighborhoods as well. For further information on any of the following meetings, please contact the city’s  Planning and Building Services department. 

  • A meeting to address a proposed zone change on the Lake Corps Power Station Property, which is located in George Rogers Park. (The property is actually in the Hallinan Neighborhood.) The city would like to change the zinging from R-7.5 (single-family residential) to Park and Natural Area to “achieve consistency with the Comprehensive Plan designation of ‘PNA’ for this property.” The meeting will be held at 6 p.m. Wednesday, March 15,2017, in the city council chamber at city hall.


  • A public hearing before the Development Review Commission is set for 7 p.m., Monday, March 20, at city hall. The hearing will address Mary’ Woods proposal to build an assisted living facility at 17400 Holy Names Drive. (The application has already been “accepted as complete.” The public hearing is a requirement of the development process. More information about Mary’s Woods’ project can be found here.

Mary’s Woods proposes another 48-unit building, hosts meeting Nov. 15

About a year after the city of Lake Oswego approved Mary’s Woods’ plans to expand its campus with nine new buildings and 200 residential units, the retirement and assisted living community is proposing an additional 48-unit building for the campus.

The additional building would be for assisted living and would provide “assisted living services to residents beyond those provided within our apartments and villa homes in our congregate care setting,” according to a letter from Marvin Kaiser, CEO of Mary’s Woods.

If approved, the building would be on the Mary’s Woods campus at 17399 Holy Names Drive.

Mary’s Woods will host a public, informational meeting about the project from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 15, 2016, at the Holy Names Heritage Center, 17425 Holy Names Drive, Lake Oswego, 97034.

Anyone who may have questions in advance or who would like to reserve a seat should contact Linda Werthessen, marketing and communications coordinator for Mary’s Woods, at 503-675-2442.

More information about the campus expansion can be found in this earlier post.
