As per the Notice from December 25, 2022; “Water Turbulence remains very high, which increases the time necessary to treat the water. It will take time for the system to regain normal water pressure. We ask everyone to please limit their use while our team continues to refill the system.”
The levels of Turbidity in our water are at extreme levels; the heavy rainfall and water flow into the reservoir continue to stir up dirt and silt making the water more challenging and time consuming to treat. In order to resume service, we announced water was available but asked to people limit their usage to allow the system to catch up. We have been seeing extraordinary water usage levels, which is not allowing the system to catch up.
IMMEDIATE ACTION NEEDED – WATER RESTRICTIONS FOR THE NEXT 72 HOURS:
Water usage must drop immediately, otherwise we will be forced to disconnect service while the system recovers.
How You Can Help:
- Limit showers to 5 minutes or less
- Do not fill hot-tubs, or large volume items
- Use only the water you need
- If you have renters or tenants, ensure they are aware of and following the restriction
Thank you for your understanding,
