[ARCHIVED] East Side Water Main Repair & Precautionary Boil Water Notice

Newsflash Water Main Break

UPDATE: 5:32PM SUNDAY 10/25:

Samples results have not come back yet from the lab and as such the precautionary boil water advisory is still in place. Once results are back, updates will follow.


UPDATE: 11:23PM 10/22:

Due to an increase in the severity of the water main break, water is being turned off this evening (Thursday, 10/22). Repairs are still estimated to be completed by 7:00PM Friday, 10/23.


Due to a 20" water main repair there will be a large water outage on Friday, October 23rd from 7:00AM-7:00PM; followed by a precautionary boil water notice.

During the repair, approximately 240 homes will be impacted. 

  • Homes south of Grant Ave (yellow area on the map below) will experience no water
  • Homes in the Upper Golf Course area (blue area on the map below) will experience low water pressure.

Reader boards are being placed in the morning on Thursday, October 22nd on Porter St and Mt Angeles Rd to provide information and updates.

Following the repair, once the water main has been disinfected and flushed, the City will take water samples to ensure safety. A precautionary boil water notice will be issued for the impacted areas. An update is expected on Sunday, October 25th. If the results are satisfactory, the precautionary boil water notice will be lifted. Updates will be provided through the reader boards, City's website, and Public Works Facebook page.

If a home does not have their water shut off or does not experience low water pressure during the repair, they are not impacted and do not need to boil water.

Please email or call 360-417-4805 if you have any questions.
