Snow removal is critical in the event of a fire emergency. Crews have been working continuously to remove snow from buried fire hydrants. We ask that snow plowing done by private contractors or customers be done in a manner as not to bury fire hydrants. Thank you to all the residents and businesses who have taken the time to shovel out their own fire hydrant.

Water Restrictions

Water Restrictions are put in place to preserve the integrity of the water supply and to ensure availability of water for domestic usage. The following is an explanation of the different classifications of water restrictions that may be put in effect in any water system. Please reference My Water System for restrictions that may be in place in your water system. Please note that water restrictions are in place all year long and when changes are made we will contact you by letter, email, or phone call.

First time violators will receive a written warning for non-compliance and further instances that violation outside usage restrictions will result in disconnection of service.  A fee for re-connection will be charged.  The Company will only reconnect until 8:00 PM on the day of disconnect.
