Fire Weather & Firewise Meeting
A message from your neighbor: Chris England Colony Mountain Neighbors: It seems awfully early in the season, but the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) has raised the fire threat to Moderate. We are in the middle of spring, yet fuels are already drying out and the threat of wildfire has begun. Although “campfires” are still allowed, general outdoor burning is suspended so you will need a permit to burn brush. Those of us who have lived up here a while know what a struggle it can be creating and maintaining a “home ignition zone” around our homes. Brush, hazard trees,…Keep reading
Water System Flushing & Volunteers with Blowers Needed Saturday May 6
Water System Flushing: This weekend, May 6-7, the Community will be performing the bi-annual water system flushing per Washington State Department of Health Guidelines. This involves running large volumes of water through our water system in an effort to remove sediments that may have collected with the distribution piping. As the water is flushed through the lines, Ferric Iron (res water iron) that is loosely adhered to the inside of the pipes will be scrubbed loose and flow downstream. Most of the loose Ferric Iron will be flushed out, but you may find your water is cloudy and has reddish…Keep reading

1st Quarter Reflections
On December 26 a message was sent to the community stating our water pump was not working and residents should conserve water. The water conservation request was lifted on January 7. Since then, we have received questions about what happened, why the delays in repairs, and what is being done to mitigate the risks of similar situations in the future. These are all reasonable questions, and the CMCC board would like to provide the community with a little more information: In immediate response to the outage notification, some of our volunteer board members, who are skilled and experienced in operating…Keep reading
Cloudy or discolored water?
We’ve heard from a few community members that were experiencing cloudy/discolored water. There was a small issue (which is now resolved) with a valve at Toad Lane that may have caused high water flows through the piping. When the water flows through the lines at high volumes, Ferric Iron (res water iron) that is loosely adhered to the inside of the pipes can be scrubbed loose and flow downstream. Most of the loose Ferric Iron should be flushed out now, but if you are downstream from Toad Lane, you may find your water is cloudy and has reddish brown particles…Keep reading
