Failure At WA Chlorine Plant May Force Some To Conserve Water

SEATTLE, WA A failure at a Longview manufacturing plant has utilities in Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Northern California facing a chlorine shortage a shortage that may leave an impact on the water supply in some towns, according to the Department of Health.

"The chlorine shortage does not impact all water and sewer utilities in the state, as some have their own onsite chlorine generators or have enough supply on hand to last several weeks," the department said in a release Saturday. "Based on the latest information, our largest water utilities should have enough supply to last until chlorine supplies resume."

The DOH goes on to encourage residents of smaller towns to check with their local water suppliers for further updates. The Department of Health is not asking Washingtonians to limit their water consumption just yet, though at least one smaller jurisdiction has already made that call the City of Anacortes is asking that its residents, as well as the residents of Oak Harbor, La Conner, and at the Naval Air Station on Whidbey Island begin conserving water.
