Who doesn’t love some time at the spa, especially when dealing with aches and pains or injuries?
David Williams, of Curtice, has designed a spa on wheels designed to provide comforting and therapeutic hot or cold therapy to for horses.
“We can switch from cold temperature of 37 degrees to hot water in a matter of three seconds,” Williams said.
Cold water therapy is designed to address soft tissue inflammations; abscesses might require warm or hot water treatments. Pulled tendons and sprains are always a concern with a competitor. Rotating treatment is also an option; depending upon a regimen suggested by a veterinarian, a horse can be treated with hot water, then go on a treadmill and then finish up a treatment with cold water.
Oregon City Council on Monday will consider amending a sewer agreement with the Northwestern Water and Sewer District (NWSD) for billing and a schedule for the district’s sewer improvements.
Oregon entered into a sewer agreement with the NWSD on April 14, 2014 that required the district to construct a 2 million gallon sanitary sewer overflow storage facility or tank and install new flow meters within 18 months of executing the sewer agreement, which is October 2015, according to Public Service Director Paul Roman.
The tank would hold excess sewage and storm water during heavy rain before it can be released and treated by Oregon’s sanitary sewer treatment plant.
Oregon has an agreement with the Environmental Protection Agency to make improvements to its system. As a result, Oregon will only treat up to 5 million gallons of storm water per day. Excess sewer and storm water overflow ends up untreated and flows into the lake. The NWSD reviewed the flow over 18 months and determined it exceeded 5 million gallons per day 60 times.
