Boil-water notice expected to be lifted

More than 200 homes will be able to use water following major water main break

PORT ANGELES — More than 200 homes in the Upper Golf Course area and south of Grant Avenue likely will be able to use their water today following a major water main break, Port Angeles Public Works Director Thomas Hunter said.

Hunter said the city is waiting for test results to return before it can lift a boil-water notice for 240 homes in the area. He said at 4 p.m. Sunday that the order to lift the boil-water notice was expected sometime Sunday afternoon or evening.

“Worst-case scenario, it will be Monday morning,” he said.

To check the status of the boil-water notice, residents of the area can check the Port Angeles Public Works Facebook page at portangelespublicworks or on the city of Port Angeles website at

Hunter said the repair was finished late Friday night. He described it as a “deep hole” in a 20-inch concrete pipe. The damage was caused by ground settling.

“That’s an old, old water main,” Hunter said. “I can’t tell you how old it is.”

Homes south of Grant Avenue experienced a complete loss of water, while homes in the Upper Golf Course area experienced low water pressure. Reader boards were put up on Porter Street and Mount Angeles Road to provide information and updates.
