Emergency Outdoor Water Ban June 25 2022!!

By contributor,

Please be advised that the town has had a pump motor failure at one of the water wells. Due to the loss in water pumping capacity we need everyone on the municipal system to please turn off all sprinkler systems and refrain from any unnecessary outdoor water use until further notice. It is of the utmost importance to ensure water for fire protection and other daily essential needs. The town will be utilizing its auxiliary sources that are safe to drink but may cause some discoloration due to iron in the water. Thank you for your assistance in this very important matter.
