Water Test Results
As of Wednesday, 9/8/21, the Precautionary Boil Water Notice was lifted.
Water samples have come back negative for any contaminants. The water is safe to drink. There is no need to boil water any longer, and you may continue to use water as normal.
This only affected the areas of:
Chinook North of Clubhouse Road
Horny Hollow Trail
Annual Meeting Cancelled
The Crooked River Ranch Water Company Annual Meeting on Saturday September 11, 2021 has been cancelled. Sorry for the late notice.
We were notified of a water main break in the area of the golf course on Friday morning.
What did we do
We had to remove and replace a small section of 8" water main. This requires us to turn the water off to approximately 120 properties downstream from the repair.
Why was a boil water notice issued.
The state requires a water utility to issue a boil water notice any time a water main pressure goes to 0psi. There is the possibility of contaminants getting to the waterline during this time.
We are closed to Walk-In's

Crooked River Ranch Water Co.
Serving you since 1977
The water system started construction in 1973 by Bill MacPherson and was completed in 1988 at the cost of 1 million dollars. At that time, the water system served 450 homes but was capable of serving 1200 homes. In 1978 Crooked River Ranch Water Company was separated from the original development and became its own company. Today we serve over 1600 homes, and we deliver over 200 million gallons of water annually to our members.
Our water is delivered to our members unfiltered and with no chemicals added. In 2014 and 2020 our water was voted the best tasting water in Oregon. There are 2 wells in operation today. Well 5 is our newest well and is over 1000' deep and produces 1200 gallons a minute. Well 4 was built in 1997, it is over 900' deep and produces 700 gallons a minute.
The water tower serves as our sole storage facility. Built-in 2016 by Landmark Structure, this water tower was the first of its kind in Oregon. The tower holds just over 1 million gallons of water and stands 120' tall.
Automated Metering Infrustructure
We are constantly working on new ways to improve the service to our members. In 2018 we started installing radio read meters that could be read by from driving around and they also notify us of a leak on a property once a month when we read the meters. Over the next few months, we will upgrade that system to an Automated Metering Infrastructure (AMI) system. This new system will allow us to provide real-time readings, give an hourly report, next-day leak notification, and much more, all without delay or leaving the office.
Want us to be able to turn your water off remotely?
Also available with this system is a meter with the ability to turn the water off to your property from the office. Having the ability to turn off the water at a moment's notice may be important to some property owners who leave for long periods. There will be a cost associated with this meter upgrade. For more information, please contact the office.
It's Official, We have one of the best tasting waters in the USA
Crooked River Ranch Water Company was awarded a silver medal for 2nd Place at the National Rural Water Associations 22nd Annual Great American Water Taste Test Finals. This is the nation's largest drinking water contest and we tied for second with Honeyville Utah.
Drinking water is judged based on three attributes: clarity, bouquet, and taste. Oregon Association of Water Utilities holds the best-tasting water in Oregon challenge every year at their March Conference. CRRWater won the state challenge in March of 2020 and was invited to go to the national challenge held by the National Rural Water Association in Washington, DC on February 11, 2021.
It is a great honor to be chosen for this award. Our amazing drinking water is provided by mother nature. The hard work and dedication by our outstanding staff and directors ensures that the water we deliver to your home stays amazing.
