Stage 2 Water Alert for Additional PUD Systems
Clallam County (PUD) is asking water utility customers in Gales Addition, Monroe and Mt. Angeles Water Districts to begin voluntary water conservation measures as a result of the area’s drought. This is a Stage 2 Water Alert from the PUD’s Drought Response Plan.
Gales Addition, Monroe and Mt. Angeles PUD Water Districts rely on purchased water supplied by the City of Port Angeles. The City announced this week that it declared a stage 2 water emergency, which encourages increased voluntary conservation. The PUD is coordinating our response because we share their water source, the Elwha River.
There are 1299 water customers in Gales Addition, 171 in Mt. Angeles, and 85 in Monroe.
There are many ways PUD customers can work to conserve water. The PUD recently launched a water conservation marketing campaign, featuring information on its website, social media channels, traditional media outlets, and customer newsletters.

The Status of Other PUD Water Systems:
The Upper Fairview Water District is on a Stage 2 Water Shortage Alert, which asks customers to practice voluntary water conservation.
Lower Fairview, Evergreen and Carlsborg Water Districts depend on groundwater. Groundwater levels are currently high, which is normal for this time of year.
The west-county water districts (Clallam Bay-Sekiu and Island View) may experience drought-related problems if dry weather persists during September.
