[ARCHIVED] City Declares Stage II Water Shortage

Newsflash Water Shortage

Due to low flows in the Elwha River, which influences the amount of water available to the City’s water system, a Stage II Water Shortage has been declared by the City of Port Angeles.  This means that immediate voluntary reductions in water consumption are encouraged.  Some 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.

If you would like information on water conservation, please call 417-4715, or you may visit the City’s water conservation web page at
