STATEMENT ON LOW WATER OR NO WATER

Due to a malfunction in an alarm, the water level in the reservoirs dropped significantly and the pressure within our water distribution system has correspondingly dropped.  Most residents will experience low pressure to no water service.

The water level is being restored and the pressure will be return by this afternoon.

However, following the orders of the Department of Health, all users of our water distribution system are under a boil water order.  This is a routine precaution when the water level waters within the reservoirs have dropped.  After the tanks have been filled, we need to conduct testing on 2 separate days before the boil order can be lifted.

We apologize for the inconvenience and will provide more information as it becomes available.
