City to Run Sprinklers at Evergreen Park Beginning This Weekend Due to Excessive Heat Warning

Due to expected high temperatures, the City of Bremerton will run sprinklers at Evergreen Park for residents through the first part of the week.

Sprinklers at Evergreen will be available Saturday through Monday (June 26-June 28) from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. for park visitors.  

“We have scheduled times to run the sprinklers at Evergreen Park in response to the excessive heat forecast through Monday,” said Mayor Wheeler. 

As a result of a shortage on the West Coast of sodium hypochlorite, which disinfects water and maintains water quality, the City was forced to close Harborside and Memorial Plaza fountains, which typically operate during summer months. With supplies limited on the West Coast, suppliers have reprioritized deliveries of sodium hypochlorite for wastewater and drinking water. In response, the City of Bremerton sought an alternative to the fountains that would be safe for the public and would still preserve supplies of the chemical for City water. 

“After careful review, we determined that Evergreen Park’s sprinklers could safely provide water to the public for cooling off while also minimally impacting the City’s supply of the disinfectant for wastewater and drinking water,” said Mayor Wheeler. 

The City of Bremerton recently provided an update on an excessive heat warning issued for Bremerton and Western Washington through Monday, June 28. Please click here for more information on the heat warning and on cooling stations available in Bremerton and Kitsap County.
