Water supply work has city crews building a platform for an additional well rig to assist with hammering out a blockage causing the pumping equipment to be stuck within the well hole. Two lengths of 10-foot column pipe are above the well hole and three lengths are still in the well hole along with the pump. Crews are expected to complete the platform by the end of the Thursday. The pump installer and additional well driller will both be on-site beginning Friday to remove the blockage and continue work on the well repairs to put Well 2 back online and producing water.
City water supply remains balanced with outside irrigation use. City staff continue to coordinate water usage with city parks and the largest water customers.
The city continues to appreciate the efforts by all water customers in assisting with reducing their outside watering during this event.
