Port Angeles considering stricter city water curbs to protect fish; other sources studied
officials are pondering imposition of stricter, Stage 3 water conservation
measures within the next three weeks as the Elwha River flows slower and slower
during the North Olympic Peninsula’s rainless summer, Craig Fulton, city public
works and utilities director, said Wednesday.
said the river is flowing at 340 cubic feet per second (cfs) two months ahead
3 measures, under which the council could limit lawn and garden watering to
specific hours and days, could be implemented as the waterway approaches 300
cfs, Fulton said.
said Wednesday there is a 50-50 chance he will recommend at the next council
meeting July 21 that council members impose the Stage 3 emergency.
I mean, yeah, why hurry, right? Why do anything to create a sense of urgency around something that's only essential for life and safety?
So, anyway, let's discuss this again - maybe, possibly - in a couple of weeks, shall we?
