Impacts of current health emergency on your City of Enumclaw Utilities and Public Works

The City is committed to maintaining all of its utilities fully operational, including Water, Sewer, Natural Gas, Solid Waste and Stormwater, through this period of concern related to the COVID-19 – Novel Corona Virus pandemic. While things may change on a day-to-day basis, public works and utility crews are considered essential to the maintenance and operation of our critical infrastructure, and today the city is fully staffed and working. The City has implemented some procedures to protect workers, such as social distancing, improved hygiene and increased cleaning cycles in work areas, but most field work will continue uninterrupted. Some projects, not critical to delivery of service, have been deferred but all our customers should see no affect from these actions.    

  • The Water Utility continues to provide uninterrupted delivery of water to your tap in compliance with the Safe Drinking Water Act. 
  • The Wastewater Treatment Plant is operating normally with no issues.
  • The natural gas system and supply are operating normally with no issues.
  • The Solid Waste systems are all in place and operating normally.  Garbage, recycle and yard waste collection should continue without any impacts.  Special accommodations are being made for businesses affected by the mandated closings ordered by the governor.
  • Utility crews are continuing maintenance and inspection of the stormwater system.
  • The City Street Department is maintaining operations, including sweeping and emergency repairs to streets and sidewalks.

While city offices are closed to public access, city personnel are continuing operations either in person or via telecommuting in order to reduce risk of the spread of this virus. City of Enumclaw employees will be following the recommendations of health agencies including social distancing and personal protective equipment when interacting with each other and customers.  For more information on how to best protect yourself and others, please visit the CDC guidelines.

If you have concerns regarding service or making utility payments, please contact the finance department at 360-615-5605.

All City of Enumclaw utilities will continue to respond to service calls due to emergencies, including pipe breaks, down signs, gas odor calls and other related services.  

Call Before You Dig.   The city and other utility providers in Enumclaw will continue to provide locate services.  It is essential that anyone requiring the location of utilities in anticipation of any in-ground work please remember to call 811 prior to digging.
