The backflow device is located in the ground behind your water meter. The purpose of the backflow device is to act as a one-way valve in order to keep the water that has entered your water lines from returning to the City’s water lines. A diagram of the backflow device is on the right. It is Oregon Law that once backflow devices are installed, they must be checked annually. The City tests all the backflows at once in order to save the citizens some money. This $20 fee is billed each year in October on the utility bill.The testing of the backflow devices will begin in the fall. During the testing, your water service may be interrupted for about 15 minutes. If you should have any questions regarding the backflow device, please feel free to contact Halsey City Hall.

Annual Backflow Device Testing
The 2017 Fall Clean Up Day is scheduled for Saturday, October 7th. This is an event put on by Sweet Home Sanitation in partnership with the City to supplement regular garbage services. Out of the ordinary items that are not usually accepted are picked up during this event.The 2017 Spring Clean Up Day left room for improvement. High volumes of items, as well as very large or heavy items were placed on the curb to be picked up. These items were cumbersome to load, and quickly filled Sweet Home Sanitation’s trucks. This resulted in more trips back to their station to unload, and residents who had nothing picked up at all. This event is for residents within Halsey city limits only. Please do not allow anyone from out of town to place items in front of your house, or the future of this event could be jeopardized. The city has worked with Sweet Home Sanitation to find ways to improve the event. The list of accepted items has been reviewed and updated in an effort to provide a clear list of what is accepted, and to help the event run more smoothly. Please carefully review the list of acceptable items found here.This event is a wonderful benefit to Halsey. Other towns do not have curbside pickup, and must transport their items to a central location for disposal. Please help us keep this event a curbside service by abiding by the list.
Crop Hunger Walk
The Central Linn County Crop Hunger Walk will be held September 23rd at 10:30 a.m. You can register online here, or at 10:00 that morning. We walk 10K (6.3mi) in solidarity with those around the world who must walk 10K simply to access clean drinking water. We accept donations which help people in our own communities as well as people around the world gain access to clean, safe drinking water, healthy food, and fuel to prepare the food they need. 25% of donations go directly to Sharing Hands in Brownsville to help our nearby neighbors. Church World Service distributes the funds we raise to provide real solutions to the world's hunger problems.We'll meet at Spirit of the Valley UMC at the corner of 3rd and F Streets at 10:00 a.m. and take off at 10:30. If you don't feel up to the full 6.3 miles, we'll have someone available to bring you back to the church, or you can walk our "miracle mile" around the block or into the church, and you can still be part of something big! If you register to walk online, you can set up your own web link to the Central Linn County Walk and reach out to your connections to raise awareness and funds for the Walk. Upon returning to the church, you’ll be greeted by friendly smiles, bowls of soup, cider, and snacks. Come out for a fun time of community spirit and intentional giving. Contact David Scranage (541-995-6185) for a pledge envelope. Suggested starting personal pledge is $10, but join us whether you can give or not!
