Stormwater & Flooding

Posted: December 18, 2020, 12:00 am

Recent storms have caused street flooding with water coming out of manhole covers. Please note that these manholes are not Beacon Hill Water and Sewer District (BHWSD) manholes. In the unincorporated areas, they are storm manholes that are owned and maintained by either Cowlitz County Public Works (CCPW) or the Lexington Flood Control Zone District (LFCZD).

Do not call BHWSD unless you have sewer backing up. You can reach CCPW and LFCZD by calling (360) 577-3030. If it is creating a safety hazard, please dial 911.
