Water was shut off at 5:00 this morning and it will be off for a minimum of 36 hours to facilitate repairs on the Shitike Creek water main line crossing. Water outages will be experienced by tribal buildings, businesses and residences located on the Campus area only, not everything south of Highway 26 as previously projected.

Due to recent breaks in the Miller Heights area, Public Utilities staff will be doing additional work on the water distribution lines in that neighborhood today.  The Miller Heights area may experience low water pressure today.

PLEASE CONSERVE WATER. All other agency neighborhoods will be using water stored in towers during the shut-off period. To ensure that your neighborhood continues to have water during this time, please conserve usage of water.

The Senior Program will be offering breakfast, lunch and dinner today and on Wednesday for seniors. Additionally, the program will be providing frozen dinners for high risk seniors during the scheduled water shut off time.

While the outage is expected to impact the campus area only, the Senior Program will move forward with plans to provide meals to seniors during this time. For more info: 541-553-3520.
