As many of you already know, we are having a water emergency. Our Water Operator and his staff are already on scene. They have identified the problem and are working to resolve it. The water treatment equipment, aka Water Boy, failed and is being repaired. We have transferred to the Montevina Pipeline and are producing abouat 35 gallons/minute. The Clearwell tank and the tanks at the top of Ogallala all need to be refilled. It will possibly take a day or two to get back to where we should be.
So, please STOP using all water. Bottled water for drinking, cooking, washing hands. No washing clothes, dishes, watering plants, etc. No flushing of toilets – put TP in a waste can and keep the lid closed. Sorry to be so blunt, but we use water a lot! ;)
The BEST thing we can do right now is to notify your neighbors, spread the word, and help each other out. We will keep you informed in our regular ways – website, newsletter, and Nextdoor. Please use your POD networks.
We will keep updating you all as we get more information. Please pass it on…
