A landslide was discovered this week dangerously-close to the city water line’s crossing of the Hood River near Tucker Park. The new green 24-inch steel line is not yet in use. Water is currently flowing through the smaller, eight-inch temporary line to the left of the larger one. The landslide threatens that temporary line, and engineers are studying how to protect it as the slide progresses. Two trees uprooted by the slide fell into the steel trestle and broke, narrowly missing the water lines. A crew felled four other trees threatening to do the same.
