​Frozen Pipes in​ West Linn!

​​The extreme cold that comes with the​ West Linn winter season can cause major water damage. The homes in West Linn that are left vacant during this season are at the greatest risk. When leaving your home for long periods of time, be sure to keep the heater on and have someone check up on it from time to time. Water pipes that are most prone to freeze and break are ones that lack the proper insulation. These frozen pipe breaks can be unnoticeable because they usually originate in the basements where insulation is minimum.

Tell-Tale Signs ​of Frozen Pipes:

  • Temperature - When the temperature outside falls to 32 Degrees Fahrenheit or lower you should start taking precautions to prevent freezing pipes. Some great tips for just that can be found here.
  • Frosty Pipes - Frost can begin to accumulate on near freezing pipes that you can see such as under sinks.
  • Low or No Water - When you turn on your faucets and little or no water comes out, the pipe leading to the faucet may be frozen.
  • ​​Strange Odors - A fourth sign could potentially be a strange smell coming from your pipes. If the pipe is partially or completely frozen, the only place for the odor to escape is back into your property.

​Some History on​ West Linn, OR

West Linn was incorporated in 1913 and merged with the adjacent town of Willamette in 1916, which had incorporated five years earlier.[8] When the City of West Linn incorporated in 1913, it encompassed West Oregon City, Bolton, Sunset and Willamette Heights. The incorporation allowed the settlements to obtain needed services, utilities, and improvements without annexing to Oregon City. After considerable debate on a name, the city founders decided to honor the pioneer town that Moore had established. The city's population historically grew steadily, but in recent years has leveled off. The 1860 census listed 225 residents. By 1920, the number had grown to 1,628. The 1960 census set the population at 2,923, and by 1970, West Linn had grown to more than 7,000. The city’s population has continued to grow each year. Currently, the city’s population is 25,250.

​21st Century

In 2011, the City of West Linn was the Top-Ranked Oregon City on the CNN/Money Magazine 'Best Places to Live 2011' List. Citing 'breathtaking views of the Cascades and relatively low local taxes,' the Number 69 listing includes a photo of Central Village, and also mentions the Music in the Park concert series, the historic Willamette area, the farmer's market, and the Street Dance. The City of Sherwood is the only other Oregon city to make the 2011 listing, coming in at Number 100. In 2009, the City of West Linn was included on the 'Best Places to Live 2009' list. Oregonians move to the hilltop homes here for a scenic view of the Cascades and relatively low local taxes.

With Portland just 25 minutes away, most residents commute into the city during the week. Weekends are spent enjoying waterfront recreation: West Linn sits at the junction of two rivers. On summer evenings, residents enjoy picnic dinners over concerts in the park. Locals also flock to a revitalized downtown area, Historic Willamette, which offers a farmer’s market and, occasionally, dancing in the street.

​Today,​ West Linn is home to attractions such as the Camassia Park.
