Water Conservation Notice

WATER CONSERVATION NOTICE

The District is currently facing challenges in meeting the community’s water demand due to an identified leak.  We have scheduled the necessary repairs for Thursday, January 25th. We kindly request your cooperation in conserving water and minimizing unnecessary usage until further notice.

We sincerely appreciate your understanding and collaboration as we work diligently to resolve this situation promptly. Your cooperation during this period is highly valued.

Conservation Tips:

Shorter Showers: To save water, consider shortening your shower duration. Even a small reduction in shower time can make a substantial contribution to overall water conservation efforts.

Opt for Full Loads: Defer using washing machines and dishwashers, but if you must, wait until you have a full load before running them. This ensures maximum efficiency for each cycle and minimizes water waste.

Unnecessary water use: Please avoid unnecessary water use until our waterline repair is complete tomorrow. With temperatures rising, we appreciate your cooperation in refraining from running water to prevent freezing.

Thank you for your cooperation on this matter. If you have any questions, please contact the District Office at 250-783-9901.
