As of September 11, 2015, the City of Forks Water Superintendent has determined that a shortage exists in the Forks city water supply and that a water emergency exists. As a result, emergency water use restrictions are in effect immediately, and are applicable to all users of the Forks city water system, whether within or without the city limits. Until further notice, the following water uses are prohibited:
Pursuant to Forks Municipal Code Chapter 2.35, as the City’s Fire Inspector, and in order to avoid any uncertainty, I hereby declare that there is an unusual fire danger in the City of Forks. Further, pursuant to the authority within that Chapter, I hereby absolutely prohibit the use of fire within the City of Forks to include such things as recreational outdoor fires regardless of their location or manner of containment. I also hereby prohibit the use of the things as “Japanese Lanterns” (floating lanterns), open fire pits, and the use of fire torches for treatment of yards, driveways, etc. This ban on the use of fire shall remain in effect until such time as the Clallam County Fire Marshall Annette Wood, or her designee, removes the concurrent Clallam County Fire Ban.
Signed this 25th of June 2015
Clallam County Fire District No. 1
(including the City of Forks)
