Lacey Urges Community Members to Reduce Water Usage During Water System Repairs

UPDATE (July 16): The temporary water restriction has been lifted. We encourage community members to continue using water wisely and to follow the mandatory outdoor watering schedule. You can learn more about the watering schedule, here.

UPDATE ( July 10): The repairs are taking longer than expected. We anticipate the job to be completed by Tuesday, July 16. Thank you for your patience.

The City of Lacey (City) urges community members to reduce outdoor water usage now through Friday, July 12 during unexpected water system repairs, impacting the ability to use one of its wells.

The well will be back online once the City has completed the water system repairs, water testing, and treatment. The City anticipates this to take place by Friday, July 12.

The need to limit outdoor water usage is critical because two of the City’s wells are already off-line for planned rehabilitation work. In addition, water usage is typically higher over the Independence Day holiday and during high temperatures as forecasted over the next several days.

The City urges community members to reduce outdoor water usage, including:

  • Irrigation of any kind
  • Car and other vehicle washing
  • Pressure washing

The City will reduce irrigation at all City-owned parks and managed landscapes. Active sports fields are exempt to protect the public’s investment in these facilities.
