EXTREME WATER RESTRICTION IN EFFECT FOR HEMLOCK VALLEY EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY
The Hemlock Utility team has been monitoring our water reservoir levels, until recently the flow into our reservoir has been similar to our usage. This is no longer the case, and our water level has now dropped well below acceptable levels. At this rate, we have less than a few days of water left. We need everyone to do their part to ensure a safe supply of drinking water is available for the residents of Hemlock Valley. If you do not live full-time in Hemlock Valley, we ask that you avoid visiting your property until this water restriction has been lifted.
Until further notice, the following are the ONLY PERMITTED uses of water:
- Brushing teeth by turning off the water and using only what is necessary
- Dishwashing, either by hand or using a high-efficiency dishwasher
- Shower of 5 minutes or less, but only if a flow restrictor is in place
- Flushing of Toilets, only when necessary
ALL OTHER USES OF WATER ARE PROHIBITED!
Failure to conform to these restrictions will affect us all, and result in the water system being shut down.
On behalf of the Hemlock Valley Utilities Team – Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
*** Please be aware, we have identified 2 potential well sites and have arranged a company who will drill these wells. However, with engineering, approvals and construction they will likely not be in use until next summer.
