Town continues to hunt water leaks, seeks help from residents
Posted December 26, 2022 at 6:46 pm by San Juan Update
The Town of Friday Harbor sends along a request for help with its continuing fight against water leaks.
The Town is continuing to lose ground with our water supply. We are asking those on Town water to please check for water leaks. At this point leaks most likely will be somewhere in your home or business rather than underground. Significant damage has already occurred to at least one home. Please check on your neighbors, particularly if their home or business is unoccupied at this time.
If you find a leak:
- Immediately shut off water to the structure at the main valve.
- If you cannot find the main valve, call the Sheriff’s non-emergency line at 360–378-4151 and the Town’s water department staff will be dispatched to turn off the water at your meter. Do not tamper with the water meter yourself. Meters may only be turned off by Town staff.
- Call a plumber to assess your situation.
In an effort to conserve our water supply, we will cease bulk sales to contractors starting tomorrow, Dec. 27, until further notice. Thank you for your assistance. We’re all in this together.
