Water systems told to conserve

SEKIU — The 33 customers of the Island View Water System are operating under a Stage 3 water alert.

The Clallam County Public Utility District has asked Island View water utility customers to begin outdoor water use restrictions as a Stage 3 response to the low level of water in Olsen Creek.

As of July 9, customers were directed to limit outdoor water use to Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Vehicle washing, except for safety-related purposes, is prohibited.

The PUD forecasts it is possible the Olsen Creek streamflow will drop to 0.077 cfs within the next couple of weeks. That forecast meets the criteria for the district’s Drought Response Plan for a Stage 3 response.

The Island View Water System is located in western Clallam County, about 10 miles west of Sekiu. It is one of the water systems operated by the PUD.

At the same time, a Stage 2 voluntary conservation alert has been issued for the Clallam Bay/Sekiu Water System.
