WS Water Repairs Tuesday

The City of White Salmon will be conducting water main repairs and have a moratorium on non-essential uses of water on Tuesday.  The City will be repairing the 14-inch water main after it was discovered two weeks ago to be leaking 30 gallons per minute along Highway 141 at Bald Mountain Curves.  The repairs had been originally scheduled for last week, but city officials say a delay in the arrival of supplies forced the change.  The moratorium will be for 13 hours starting at 8 a.m. on September 24.  The water moratorium does not affect essential uses like drinking, cooking or water for flushing toilets.  It will include irrigation, car washes, laundry, and showers.  All irrigation systems need to be turned off by Monday evening, September 23.  Restaurants and other commercial establishments that use water for their business are asked to reduce usage on the 24th where possible.  For additional information, contact City Administrator Pat Munyan at 509-493-1133, extension 202.
