Updated Information 5-8-24

We are expecting water pressure to return to normal early this afternoon. With that, we are expecting to see sediment and discolored water in the lines. Flush your outside spigot or run water in your bathtub until clear. We are unsure what the timeline will be for the boil advisory due to test results from the lab.

Boil Advisory 5-8-24

Power outage in town and the water tower empty for painting has caused depressurization in the system and requires the city to issue a boil advisory once the water is back on. The water may be used, but not consumed prior to boiling. If you could please pass this info to your employers and fellow businesses, it would be greatly appreciated. Please watch the city’s website and Facebook page for further updates.
