Water Leaks:

City Staff is continuing to repair multiple water leaks throughout the City as they are discovered.

 City Well Update:

We currently have one of our smaller producing City wells offline due to lack of water.  The pump is set at a level that is significantly higher than the ultimate depth of the well casing and the measured water level.  Lowering the pump is achievable.  A Contractor is scheduled for September 15th to start the work on this well.  City Staff is regularly monitoring the water level at all City wells, even though the levels are lower than normal there are no significant concerns at this time.
