Update - May 2022

The following version of this update has been adjusted for ADA accessibility:

Two new water wells, P-21 and P-22 were completed in April and placed into operation on May 9th and 10th, when the city received adequate approvals from the Department of Health. These two wells produce in excess of one million gallons of raw water per day, which drastically increases our ability to supply drinking water to residents and businesses.

The City has embarked upon a thorough growth and improvement of the water system in order to surpass the expected water demand for years to come. The improvements underway are as follows:

        -Construction of two (2) new water wells, with projected completion by end of April 2022 (COMPLETE)

        -Two (2) additional wells under construction with expected completion of Fall 2022 (ON-TRACK) 

        -A new water tank under construction to allow additional space to store drinking water with expected 

         completion in Fall 2022 (ON-TRACK)

        -Seven (7) more new wells are in the design and planning phases to begin construction in 2023-24 (ON-TRACK)

        -The process to expand the water plant is already underway (ON-TRACK)

Please review the Water Pressure Guide accompanies this update, which outlines some of the most common factors impacting water flow in your home and what you can do.
