Please note that the Town of Craik is on a “Boil Water Advisory” which means at this time our town water supply is “NOT SAFE TO DRINK”! The water is fine for doing dishes, laundry, bathing and other such household water uses. If you are going to drink the water you must first boil the water for 3 minutes at a rolling boil.
The Craik mayor and town council regrets this inconvenience very much and are doing everything they can to rectify the problem. Our community built a brand new water plant a few years ago with a company called “Mainstream Water Solutions” which did not, EVER, work properly. The company was unable to get it working and was less than helpful in fixing the problem and has now declared bankruptcy leaving Craik and a few other communities with water plants that don’t work properly and no help to fix the water supply.
So we are diligently pursuing our options and hope to realize a solution as soon as possible.
