Community Calendar for Friday June 14, 2019
- Work will began on Monday on the repairs for the Shitike Creek water main line crossing. It is expected that water will be shut off on Tuesday, starting at 5:00 am for a minimum of 36 hours. Project updates will be provided to the community as the work progresses.
- Public Utilities staff completed work to minimize water outages to the community and it is anticipated that these outages will be contained to the Campus area only, not everything south of Highway 26 as previously projected. Additional updates will be provided should anything change with water outage impacts.
