Broken water line reported at Siuslaw campgrounds

FLORENCE — Campers staying at three Siuslaw National Forest campgrounds will be roughing it this weekend.

KCST radio reports that a break in an underground water line serving the Driftwood II, Lagoon, and Waxymyrtle campgrounds was detected Wednesday. That led to the closure of all flush toilets, showers and water faucets in the three campgrounds that serve as a base of operations for many off-road enthusiasts who access the northern portion of the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area south of Florence.

Paul Meznarich, with the Siuslaw National Forest, says portable toilets have been brought in, but campers must provide their own drinking water until the leak can be found and repaired.

Meznarich says it's hoped that full services are restored by the end of July.
