12.18.2018 Water System Update: The city is planning to switch the water system over, from the old reservoirs and wells to the new system on Tuesday, 12/18/2018. Residents may experience sediment and manganese in the lines during this process. Please read the information below on the best ways to deal with sediment or manganese in your water. Contact City Hall (509) 923-2571 if you have a water emergency or need additional assistance during this process.
The technicians plan to meet in the morning around 10AM, and the process is expected to take several hours. There are a lot of unknowns, as we found out last week, so we appreciate your patience and understanding as we turn on the new system.
PREPARE FOR A NEW WATER SYSTEM
WHEN: Planning for morning of December 18th, but may happen throughout the week of December 17-21.
WHAT TO EXPECT:
Residents should have water pressure through the transition. You may see little or no immediate change in service.
Water pressures will increase by about 20 psi. Unlikely, but water leaks may develop due to the increase pressure.
Manganese and sediment may break loose in the lines causing dark water, clogged fixtures, and clogged meters.
WHAT TO DO:
If you have a water emergency please call City Hall 923-2571. If you are out of water, or need help please call City Hall 923-2571. The Public Works staff will be available, and prioritizing requests.
If you have black or dark water, turn all water off and run cold water in your tub until it runs clean. Then remove screens on sinks and run till clean.
