Mandatory Water Usage Restrictions Due To an Important Water System Upgrade

Wednesday, November 30, 2022, Thru Monday, December 5, 2022

A crew will replace a section of the water transmission line near the water plant pumphouse. During this time, Cypress Water will endeavor to keep the water storage tanks located at the Upper Ogallala Tank Farm as full as possible. Your assistance with the goal is needed. Please be water conscious and reduce water usage during this critical water system upgrade.

The work will begin on Wednesday, November 30, 2022, and continue through Monday,December 5, 2022. The water plant will not produce water while the transmission line work is in progress. During the evenings, Cypress Water will fill the tanks. The success of refilling the water tanks will depend on how much water the community has conserved during the day and evening.

Replacing this section of the transmission line pipe will enable our Water Master to maintain storage tank water levels.

As a reminder, when it is raining, the ability of the water plant to produce clean turbidity-free water is reduced.  Purchasing water from the San Jose Water Montevina Pipeline may be required to maintain safe water storage levels at an additional cost to the community.  FYI - Rain is in the  forecast for this Thursday, 12/1.

Water conservation is a year-round responsibility for us all.

Thank you for your efforts during this vital water system upgrade,

CPMWC and Cypress Water Services

Water Conservation Now!

As Autumn descends with it's dry winds, please take a moment with your family to discuss ways to conserve water.  The Water Master of CPMWC is asking residents to consciously reduce water usage by 30% until further notice.  This past month alone (September) the water plant treated 811,419 gallons of water AND purchased 293,194 gallons of water from San Jose Water.  That equates to 237 gallons per DAY per HOME.  

To help the younger members of our community understand what water conservation is and why it's important, here are a couple of links you may enjoy.

IMMEDIATE WATER USAGE REDUCTION

Announcement

Chemeketa Park Residents

Immediate Water Usage Reduction

Saturday, August 13, 2022

Our Water Master, Cypress Water Services, is requesting that Chemeketa Park residents reduce their water usage now. With the recent power outage, which required a water treatment system reset, and the reduced flow of Moody Gulch, we are having difficulty maintaining proper water storage levels in our water storage tanks.

As the summer progresses and the daily heat increases, particularly in the next week, it is necessary and incumbent on us all to conserve as much water as we can. The hotter it gets, the less water flows in Moody Gulch(MG). The reduced MG water flow may require using San Jose Water’s Montevina Pipeline at an additional cost to the community.

The current water reduction rate is 20%.

The Board of Directors appreciates your efforts to conserve water during these challenging conditions.

Please go to www.chemeketapark.org for resources on how to save water.  Scroll down to the second page in the "News" section.

Thank you,

Cypress Water Services and the CPMWC BoD
