[ARCHIVED] LIMITED water use allowed/Boil Water Lifted


Update as of 1:00 pm 3/12/22:

Sorry we missed yesterday! We were distracted by a busy council meeting coming up, and you can review the full packet for any council meeting, including Tuesdays, at! We will continue to update on our water storage regularly until we have a good grasp on storage both in town tanks and at our reservoirs. 

As for the water, our tanks do continue to rise. Thank you to everyone who has worked so hard! Most excitedly, our tank farm has risen almost a full foot! As these are gigantic tanks, that is a good amount of water in storage. As we are now unlikely to experience another low-pressure event soon, personal and business life can mostly be back to normal. However, we are still asking people to take water conservation seriously

This will help get more water into Peaking Reservoir, both for summer use or for use during issues that may arise as repairs are made. For this reason, please conserve water, especially by: 

  • taking short showers 
  • washing dishes with the least amount of water possible (dishwashers only when full) 
  • normal flushing 
  • washing laundry using a shorter cycle and correct size 
  • always turn off the faucet when not using the water,  such as washing hands, dishes, produce, or brushing teeth
  • If you cannot keep pipes warm, leave a slow water drip during freezing events. Burst pipes often waste more water.

Please note: all unused spring water will be stored for the summer or in case of problems. So please use water as necessary, but not more than needed. There are tons of great tips online, including a list at
