Water Outage

So tomorrow upper Edelweiss will have a water shutdown. We will be reassessing in the am . Until then Edelweiss will be closed to all none essential traffic effective immediately. This is due to a large ice build up and possibility of aggravating the situation into a rupture.

We will keep everyone updated when we know more.
