Community Calendar for Friday June 21, 2019
- Work continues on the emergency repairs to the South East vault and the 8” water line on the north side of Shitike Creek. It is anticipated that these repairs will be completed this morning and Public Utilities staff can start to bring the system back online. This will restore water flow to the Campus area, the Miller Heights neighborhood and the South East, Greeley Heights and West Hills reservoirs.
- Until this happens, water outages will continue in the Miller Heights neighborhood, the Campus area and for Tribal buildings, businesses and residents served by the South East reservoir.
- Water outages are also now occurring in West Hills as reservoir reserves have been depleted.
- The Greeley Heights reservoir has been isolated. There is enough reserve to provide water for approximately 24 hours with continued conservation efforts.
