Water main repair to affect some Port Angeles homes

Outage is to fix a 20-inch main

PORT ANGELES — About 240 homes will be affected by a water outage today from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., the city of Port Angeles announced.

The outage is to repair a 20-inch main.

Homes south of Grant Avenue will have water cut off while homes in the Upper Golf Course area will experience low water pressure.

Reader boards have been placed on Porter Street and Mount Angeles Road to provide information and updates, the city said.

Following the repair, once the water main has been disinfected and flushed, city workers will take water samples to test its safety.

A precautionary boil water notice will be issued for the impacted areas. Those who do not have their water shut off or do not experience low water pressure during the repair will not need to boil water.

An update is expected Sunday. City officials said that if test results are satisfactory, the precautionary boil water notice will be lifted.
