Water meter testing scheduled on campus today

The city of Newberg will be conducting what they call “large water meter testing” today (Monday). The Newberg campus has both large water meters with bypass valves and large water meters without bypass valves. Buildings being serviced by meters without bypass valves will experience a disruption in water service during testing times.

Locations of large water meters with bypass valves (that should not experience disruption in water service):

  • Roberts Center meter
  • Wood-Mar meter

Locations of water meters without bypasses:

  • Ross meter (testing scheduled for 8:30 a.m.)
  • Wheeler meter (testing scheduled for 10:30 a.m.)
  • Hobson / Macy / Sutton meter (testing scheduled for 1:30 p.m.)
  • George Fox irrigation meter, located near Wood-Mar (no testing schedule provided)
  • Morse Field meter (no testing schedule provided)

The city has stated that the testing should take about 30 minutes per meter. During that time the water may be off completely, unless it has a bypass valve. Questions can be directed to the plant services office (plantservices@georgefox.edu).
