Water Upgrade Week 2

Four pressurized vessels were received this week. In addition, two electrical motors, one natural gas, and three vertical turbine pumps came to our community.

Presently, 4 of 5 sand filters have been taken offline and are being prepped for removal.

Half of the current Mainstream system is to be taken offline September 11 in conjunction with the intake screen upgrade project happening at the Craik Dam.

At present, water reserves are in excellent shape with an additional 40 thousand gallons for fire purposes.

While the intake project continues, the community will not be drawing fresh water from the dam for up to 2 days. Service to the community will not experience any disruptions during this process.

Aside from the additional backup fire reserves, we have over three days of water capacity presently treated and no precautions are necessary for the community.

As a reminder, it is requested that the public avoid visiting areas where work is being performed.

The job sites involve heavy equipment, enclosed spaces, excavation, and other hazards. We will do our best to document progress via pictures and continual updates.
