Voluntary conservation encouraged in Port Angeles

PORT ANGELES — The City of Port Angeles has declared a Stage II water shortage due to low flows in the Elwha River.

The river influences the amount of water available to the city’s water system.

Stage II means that immediate voluntary reductions in water consumption are encouraged.

Recommended voluntary conservation actions include:

• Install low-flow shower heads and faucets that are available free upon request from City Hall.

• Reduce frequency and volume of lawn watering and limit it to early morning or evenings.

• Collect a rebate for installing water-efficient toilets, rain barrels, watering timers and soil moisture meters.

• Reduce car washing frequency.

• Operate automatic dishwashers/clothes washers only when full.

• Think about other ways to conserve water.

The city’s water shortage response ordinance has five stages.
