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 firstname.lastname@example.org, so that we can coordinate these efforts and let you know if anything changes.
Thank you for your support!
