Sunday’s Klawock boil-water notice canceled

Heavy rain over the weekend led to a boil-water notice on Sunday for residents of Klawock. The Prince of Wales Island community was able to get its water disinfection back to acceptable levels, though, and the notice was canceled Monday morning.

Klawock City Administrator Leslie Isaacs says that Klawock is upgrading its water treatment plant, and two of the four filters had been taken offline for maintenance. Heavy rain increased the turbidity in the source water, and the chlorine levels dipped.

Isaacs says that water treatment crews corrected the problem, and the levels were back to normal.

Klawock’s source of drinking water is Three Mile Creek.
