Requesting a Locate

 

Whether you are planning to do it yourself or hire a professional, smart digging means calling 811 before each job. Visit https://call811.com/811-In-Your-State​ or dial 811 at least two working days before you plan to dig and all affected utilities will send workers to mark their utility-owned underground lines with color-coded paint.

 

You’ll know we’ve been there because you’ll see specific paint marks on your lawn or driveway. Each color defines a particular type of underground utility: White – Proposed Excavation; Pink – Temporary Survey Markings; Red – Electric; Yellow – Gas/Oil; Orange – Communications/CATV; Blue – Water; Purple – Reclaimed Water/Irrigation; Green – Sewer

 

Cross Connection and Backflow Prevention

 

Water System Cross Connection Control Survey:

 

In order for the PUD to meet the Washington State Department of Health requirements per WAC 246-290-490, we ask each of our water customers to complete a Cross Connection Control Survey. Customers with more than one water meter should fill out one survey form for each PUD meter on your property. After we receive your survey, our cross connection specialist will schedule an appointment for an onsite assessment, if required.

 

The utility’s goal is to develop and implement procedures and schedules for ensuring that:

  • We provide safe drinking water

  • Cross-connections are eliminated whenever possible, and

  • When cross-connections cannot be eliminated, they are controlled by installation of an approved backflow preventor commensurate with the degree of hazard

Please review Cross Connections Health Hazards brochure for answers to many of your questions about cross connections and backflow information. After you review the brochure and complete the Cross Connection Control Survey, please contact Wahkiakum PUD if any of these situations change or if you have any additional questions or concerns and we will be happy to assist you.
