Water supply

Posted on June 26, 2023 under: Announcements
Bulk water will not be sold today, Monday, to let the water tower recover – once again residents are asked to use water sparingly and monitor their water use.  Please consider moving away from greens that require a lot of water and plant greens that are thriving in a very low water required environment.  This is applicable all throughout the summer and as temperatures are rising and forecasted to rise in the next few weeks.
Thank you. Administration
