Olalla Canyon Reservoir

Earlier this month, the PUD identified capacity problems with the spring that serves some residences in Ollala Canyon.

Here is some updated information for you:

  • The PUD visited the spring source with a hydrogeological consultant on Friday, Jan. 12
  • We discovered that the spring had moved from inside the collection box to just outside the spring box
  • A temporary solution was put in place to return flow to roughly 50 gallons per minute
  • We are no longer requesting that you conserve water as a result of this issue
  • The Department of Health has approved returning the spring to service, and the PUD did on Wednesday, Jan. 17
  • The Health Dept. confirmed that your water is SAFE to drink and use
  • The PUD and the hydro geologist will continue to work on a long-term solution
  • We will update customers when more information on the long-term solution is available

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact teka.sellers@chelanpud.org or (509) 661-4294.
