Rosedale, east Cathlamet water shut off Monday night for construction
July 23, 2020
The Town of Cathlamet will shut off water tonight (Monday) to mains serving east Cathlamet and Rosedale in order for a contractor to work on a water main extension along SR 4. Here are the details from a Town Hall notice:
THIS SHUT-OFF IS EXPECTED TO AFFECT ALL HOMES LOCATED NEAR OR BETWEEN
THE WAHKIAKUM HIGH SCHOOL AND EAST TO THELMA TERRACE.
We ask that everyone on the Town’s water system on the following streets please be prepared:
Alder St, Anderson St, Columbia St, Cougar Falls, Cougar Ridge, Douglas St, E SR 4, Elm St, Fern Hill, Glen
Lane, Glengate Loop, Glengate St, Hill Dr, Irving St, Island View Ln, Jacobson Rd, N Jacobson, Linquist Ln,
Michael, Olive Rd, S. South, S. Third, Thelma Terrace.
Your water service will be temporarily shut-off on
MONDAY, JULY 27, 2020,
from approximately 7:00 PM to 4:00 AM
to allow our contractor to complete a water main connection on
Columbia Street at East SR 4. (This requires turning the valve on the water main off,
which is what controls your water supply.)
The actual duration of the shut-off will depend on the conditions encountered.
Once the work has been performed, your water service will be restored.
Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding. We apologize for any
inconvenience this may cause.
Please note that the water may be discolored after the water service is restored but should
clear up in a short time period. If the water remains discolored,
please contact Public Works at (360)795–3203 x4.
Discolored water after an outage. Water outages can sometimes disturb the direction or flow of water in the
Town's drinking water system. When this happens, customers in or near the outage area may experience
temporary discolored water. Discolored water comes from internal pipe rust and sediment getting stirred up
when the water is turned on after an outage.
The water should clear on its own. Try running the cold water for a few minutes to see if it is clearing or still
discolored. If the water does not clear, let the water sit for 1 to 2 hours. Then, run cold water for a few minutes
in your bathtub or shower. If your home is located on a dead-end line, it may take longer to clear up
