Water Outage August 27th 2014

We have a broken valve near the water treatment.  We are in the process of isolating the leak and will be digging it up to replace it.  The work is expected to start by 9 am on August 27th.  The effected area is North of Grand Ave between Hemlock and Aspen, and now includes Longview Subdivision.  There will be more information updated this afternoon August 27th at 4:30 PM.

Update as of 4:52 PM August 27:
We are still in the process of digging up the broken valve.  We anticipate that water should be restored to all areas this evening.  Water outage in areas North of Hwy 40 and in Longview area.

Update as of 6:30 PM
The valve has been replaced and operators are in the process of turning water back on.  As long as the replaced valve holds all water should be restored within the next couple of hours.

Update as of 7:12 PM
All water should be restored however there is limited water in the storage tank causing low pressure for many areas of town.  We are in the process of making water to fill the tank and restore pressure to normal.

Thank you for your patients
