Calendar for Sun., Dec. 27, 2020

Public Utilities has issued a temporary water shut off notice for the Wolf Point area for tomorrow (12/28) between 8am to 5pm. This is for work on an isolation valve in the Wolf Point subdivision in order ahead of work on the South Kahneeta PRV station. The installation could require 8 hours to complete so residents should be prepared for no water during that time. Installation of this isolation valve will ensure that the residences will NOT be affected by work scheduled at the South KNT PRV station.


Warm Springs Sanitation says next week, all Friday trash pick-up routes will be picked up on Thursday due to the New Year’s holiday.
