Water improvement project updates

The 1,000,000 gallon tank had a makeover, both inside and outside.  The tank had not been painted since installation in the 1980s.  This was Phase 3 of the water improvement project and cost close to $200,000.  This will prolong the life of our tank for another 20+ years! We also recently completed Phase 2 of the water improvement project and increased our water storage capacity by 250,000 gallons with the rehabilitation of the old concrete storage tank.

thank you fire & water departments!

Remember back in March when our ISO rating was reduced from a #6 to a #5?  We sent out a press release alerting you of this news and encouraging you to contact your insurance agency and let them.  Thank you to the Fire Department Volunteers for your hard work and effort of quick response, emergency reporting and the truck's pumping capacity!  Thank you to the Water Department for keeping us supplied with adequate water in case of fire, and keeping our hydrants flushed and ready!  Because of your hard work someone shared this little message of THANKS on the back of their water bill!  Great job!

 

Please keep your blue light on to support our law enforcement
