Happy Holidays!

The office will be closed November 25th & 26th for Thanksgiving and December 24th for Christmas Eve so office staff can enjoy some time with their families.

Continued Flushing Today 9-27-21

Please limit your water use in the community today. King Water was unable to complete the full system flush last week. They will be finishing the flush today on Reipma, Douglas, Glencairn, Penn Cove Gabrielson and Circle. If you live on these streets, you’ll need to flush your outside lines after 4pm today. If you live in the rest of the community, you may notice pressure fluctuations but should only need to flush your outside lines if you notice discolored water. Call the office at 360-678-7446 if you have any questions.

2 Day Flush Reminder September 22 & 23

Semi-annual full system flush notice & procedure for a planned 2 DAY FLUSH. Rolling Hills-Glencairn water main lines will be flushed from 8am-5pm on Wednesday & Thursday September 22 & 23, 2021. A full system flush consists of closing and opening main water valves strategically throughout the community to run water through all the main lines and out the fire hydrants. This procedure cleans out all the water lines of sediment that can build up over time.  DO NOT USE ANY WATER during the flush. You may have water in your home sporadically throughout the day but using it will delay the restoration of supply to everyone. If you use water during the flush, stirred up sediment may be pulled into your house. At 5pm each day, when the flush is complete for the day, we suggest you turn on an outside hose bib and let it run about 10 minutes.

Since this is a two day flush. It is recommend to run your outside hose at 5pm on both days. Flushing will begin about 8am and continues until 5pm. You can use water both evenings after running your outside faucets as usual. No further calls or texts will be sent upon completion. King Water will stop flushing before 5pm in order to allow the reservoirs to partially refill prior to community use.

Easing of Pool Restrictions

Beginning Tuesday, June 29th. We’re finally easing up on the restrictions at the POOL although we still have some requirements to meet in order to maintain recommended distancing guidelines at the pool.

You must have a current pool card to use the pool. Visit our Rules & Reservations at Pool Schedule & Reservations – Rolling Hills Glencairn Community for more information. This is another year of adjustments and change and we will do our best!

Annual Pier Inspection this Thursday & Friday

The Annual Pier Inspection is scheduled for the negative tides this week. Thursday & Friday, June 24 & 25 at 10:30 am. In order to inspect the pilings they all need to be scraped, so community help would be much appreciated. Wear a hat & rubber boots, bring a shovel & gloves and help the community out. Besides feeling good about serving in the community, pizza and sodas will be served.

Gate Opening Instructions

To answer some questions about the gate and passes. You will receive 1 keycard and 2 hang tags. The hang tags have your individual account numbers on them and can be transferred to your other vehicles if you have more than 2 vehicles. The account numbers are the same as your Rolling Hills billing accounts.


There is no electricity at the beach so you must open and close the gate manually.
Hold the keycard next to the black box below the keypad. The lock will open, you turn the handle and swing the gate open. Drive in and close the gate behind you. When leaving, follow the same procedure in reverse. There is a black box below the keypad on both sides. IF YOU ALLOW OTHER VEHICLES IN WITHOUT THEIR OWN KEYCARD, THEY WILL BE LOCKED IN. You need the keycard for entry and exit. The keypad is there for programming purposes. If you try to use it, you will have to wait 30 seconds for it to reset so you can try your card again.

Pending Water Shut off Notice for April 15th!

In preparation for the full system flush next week, King Water will be cleaning the large reservoir this Thursday, April 15th. This means that water will be shut off at the main from 9am-5pm. I apologize, I would have notified you in the newsletter, if I had known sooner.

To answer some of your questions from the last shut off/repair day.

  1. There is about 500,000 gallons of water in the main lines, this means that many people will still have limited water throughout the day because of gravity. Once that water is used, there won’t be more until they are finished.
  2. As a precaution, you should always flush your outside faucets after any water event.  
  3. I will send out a reminder robo-text or call Wednesday evening, but full water service will resume by 5pm on the Thursday, you won’t receive another notification to say it’s done. It will be done by 5pm.
  4. FYI. The allotted amount of information that can be shared on a robo-calls & texts is limited. If your call/text isn’t clear, go to the website rollinghillsglencairn.com or Rolling Hills Glencairn Neighborhood Watch Facebook page for details.

EMERGENCY WATER SHUT OFF

March 12, 2021 The water system will be shut down today from 9am-5pm today. There was a malfunction with the valve system in the water plant. It will be an all day repair.

After any water event it is a good idea to flush your outside faucets.
