Today, the city had a main water line damaged by a contractor. The crews have fixed the water leak. The #6 well’s booster pump went down making the CGMA water system unavailable because we cannot transfer water from the CGMA system to the city water system. The #4 well’s electrical panel caught on fire this afternoon causing extensive damage, making this pump unavailable until repairs and parts can be located.
The City is issuing an Emergency Conservation Order to make citizens aware of conservation measures and prohibit outdoor watering until notified. There is a limited water supply and everyone should use caution with any excess use.
The current levels do not require a boil order at this time. Crews are monitoring the system and will keep citizens informed if additional measures are needed.
