Water Line Work and Volunteer Opportunity Thursday 10/1/2020

The Skagit County Public Works culvert replacement project at Harrison Creek is making progress. We received word today that County’s contractor will be ready for us to remove the temporary/bypass water line and install the permanent line on Thursday. Here’s what you need to know about that changeover:

CMCC water shut-off and temporary service for some properties: Lots #1 through #12, plus #83 and #84 will have their water shut off on Thursday morning during the changeover to protect you and the CMCC water system. This water service interruption is planned to start at 9:00 am and expected to last approximately 4 hours. After the water service has been restored, you will be under a BOIL WATER NOTICE. The notice will be lifted once we receive notification that the water is safe to drink.

For your convenience during the shutdown, we suggest the following:

  • Store enough water for drinking, pet use, dishes, personal hygiene, etc.
  • Toilets can be flushed by pouring water into the bowl/tank.
  • You may wish to turn off your hot water heater, circulating pumps, etc. per manufacturer’s instructions.
  • When service is restored, there may be trapped air in the lines or discolored water. Open faucets for a few minutes until these problems clear.

Volunteers Needed: We could use 3-4 helpers to shut off water services, flush the water line and turn services back on that morning. We will meet at the well house at 8:30 am Thursday.

If you are available to help, please email your contact information to info@colonymtcc.org, so that we can coordinate these efforts and let you know if anything changes.

Thank you for your support!
