Water alerts issued for two more Clallam PUD systems

The Clallam County Public Utility District has issued an alert asking upper Fairview Water System customers to voluntarily conserve water while mandatory restrictions have been put into effect for the small Island View Water System near Seiku.

Stage 2 alert

The objective of the Stage 2 alert, issued Monday, for the upper Fairview system is to encourage customers there to conserve and prepare customers for a possible increase in drought response later in the season, said Nicole Clark, PUD spokeswoman in a news release.

Water for the upper Fairview View Water System — which includes all PUD water services south of the Deer Park Reservoir on Deer Park Road and south of John Jacobs Road off O’Brien Road — is primarily supplied by Morse Creek, which is expected to drop to 25 cubic feet per second streamflow soon.

Withdrawals from the creek must cease at levels below 25 cfs, Clark said.

The PUD is preparing for operation of the Deer Park Road pump stations to pump water from wells in the lower Fairview Area to the upper Fairview area, she added.

Stage 4 alert

The Stage 4 alert issued for the 33 customers in the Island View District requires that they eliminate outdoor water use and minimize indoor water use because of low streamflow in Olsen Creek.

The district west of Seiku was put on a Stage 3 alert in July.

The objective of the Stage 4 alert is to cut overall water consumption by 10 percent to 20 percent.

A Stage 2 alert was issued in July for the Clallam Bay/Sekiu Water System.

Other areas

Other Clallam PUD water systems — lower Fairview, Gales Addition, Monroe, Mount Angeles, Carlsborg and Evergreen — do not have active water drought response plans in effect.
